ID: CC6482
Sparkling, interconnected spheres of buttercream Dolomite cover a drusy surface of Dolomite crystals on a white Quartz matrix. This rather beautiful small cabinet specimen is from Banská Štiavnica in Slovakia, an area rich in NE-SW trending epithermal vein-type deposits of both base and precious metals. This Dolomite forms spectacular orbs of typically 1.8 cm diameter with lustrous, sparkling surfaces of tiny Dolomite crystals. Some spheres occur individually and some merge to form a intergrown chain of partially merged domes, reminiscent of the Eden Project’s geodetic biospheres.
