Pyrite on Fluorite on Quartz

ID: CC2568

Unusual and super beautiful combination of snow white drusy Quartz crystals in turn coated by translucent, lustrous lilac coloured Fluorite. A final touch to these generations of growth are highly modified cubo-octahedral Pyrite crystals with great lustre. This particularly aesthetic example is unusual among the group due to the form of the Quartz underneath the Fluorite and the location of the Pyrite, creating a creature-like specimen! A really cute specimen!!
