Epitaxial Pyrite on Arsenopyrite With Calcite

ID: CC1998

A large and glistening Arsenopyrite crystal with magnificently detail created by the secondary epitaxial overgrowth of Pyrite. Also present is a 'Wolframite' crystal (to 20mm) and a partial coating of Calcite. The stepped detail of the secondary Arsenopyrite is fabulous. A sizeable example in excellent condition.
