Description

Details

Pale white, translucent calcite crystals intertwined with golden chalcopyrite which sit atop a bed of rough, pink dolomite - a carbonate mineral - to add pink to the matrix bed. Calcite crystals beautifully sprout from the contrasting dark matrix, which in itself sparkles and glints in the light. This is further contrasted to the pale and chalky dolomite which supports the crystals form below, exhibiting the textbook rhomb crystal habit. A unique display piece which has been mined from a region that has only recently become safely accessible, this specimen is perfect for serious mineral collectors, it measures 80 x 80 x 50 mm in size and weighs 358 grams and comes supplied with a white card tray and information label.
