Calcite with Chalcopyrite and Sphalerite

ID: CC6227
A pleasing specimen of Calcite with Chalcopyrite, Sphalerite and Pyrite on Quartz from the Gyöngyösoroszi mining area in the Mátra mountains of Hungary. The Calcite forms an intergrowth of two white crystals, overgrown by colourless Calcite with spiky double terminations.  Abundant bright crystals of metallic brassy Chalcopyrite, with lustrous, very dark brown crystals of Sphalerite and minor Pyrite are scattered and aggregated over Quartz with white ‘Kaolinite’ on a matrix of massive Sphalerite and Pyrite.  A pretty Calcite with may associated species from this ancient European mining area.
