Item Description

Surreal and RARE large calcite combination from an unknown Chenzhou, China locality. Fantastic oriented "Mercedes Benz star" coatings of sparkly, oxide-tinted pyrite microcrystals are dramatically set on the terminations of the densely intergrown, glassy, translucent, nailhead calcite crystals nicely accented with stepped-growth faces. The impressive large central crystal is 4.7 cm tall. Moderate dark pink fluorescence. Ex Chet Lemanski Collection. A rare and unique style and unique color of pyrite on calcite from Chenzhou.
