Description:A dramatic and sculptural 360-degree combination from this famed locale. A striking 3.0 cm rosette of brilliant, striated, silver-metallic arsenopyrite crystals with tiny brown siderite rhombs, cloaked in calcite rhombs is artistically set on the side of a glassy, translucent quartz crystal with a water-clear termination. Flattened calcite rhombs preferentially envelope most of the quartz crystal, including the base. Complete all-around and essentially pristine. You can barely tell, that the back of the quartz termination is gently bruised. Exceptional, aesthetic and classic combination material from the Art Soregaroli Collection.
