A very large aesthetic specimen hosting numerous radiating flower-like clusters of Calcite scalenohedra. The Calcite crystals are soft-white with minor reddish Hematite inclusions and have a pearly luster. Even the matrix, with colorless Quartz, lustrous Galena and Chalcopyrite, adds to the overall aesthetics of the piece. A couple of the Calcite crystals are incomplete, but that’s to be expected and is not a detraction in the least. Overall, an outstanding and beautiful specimen.
