A magnificent cabinet display specimen of blocky, well developed metallic black Sphalerite crystals dusted with 1 mm snow white Calcite crystals and sub-mm, golden sucrosic Pyrite crystals.  Both Calcite and Pyrite coatings are preferentially deposited on similarly aligned faces of the Sphalerite crystals, showing the “way-up” of the specimen when in-situ.  Punctuating the overall aesthetic are two splendid pagoda-like towers of stacked creamy flattened Calcite crystals, 3 and 4 cm tall, respectively.  A superb specimen from Stríbro (Miers) in the Plzen Region of the Czech Republic that would grace any cabinet.
