Pyrite on Calcite

ID: CC1694

A specimen with a stalactite like form of intergrown Calcite preferentially coated on one side by sparkling Pyite. The lustrous Calcite forms sharp translucent rhomboid crystals to 1cm on edge. The lustrous metallic iridescent crystals of cubo-octahedral Pyrite measure to 2mm, growing thickly on one surface. A few scattered group of Pyrite cluster on the tips of Calcites on the other side, and on a group of gemmy Quartz crystals towards one end of the specimen. A fine bright specimen for display.
