Calcite with Chalcopyrite
This extra large piece hosts 2 generations of Calcite: the first generation is featured on the front which is a layer of bright white, highly lustrous Calcite crystals, and then on the side and back is a second generation of beige colored microcrystalline Calcite crystals. In addition, scattered throughout the piece are numerous crystals of Chalcopyrite. I really like the contrast between the three mineral presentations as well as the three different lusters. A unique piece in excellent condition.
