Calcite, Chalcopyrite, Dolomite
Black Rock, Lawrence County Zinc District, Lawrence Co., Arkansas, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 3.6 x 3.6 cm
An Arkansas classic. Fine lustrous blades of pink Dolomite coated with beautiful Chalcopyrite, topped by a 2.5 cm Calcite also coated with Chalcopyrite. Very lovely, and a great combination piece for this well-known district. There are a few cleaved blades of Dolomite, and a few bruises on the Calcite, but overall it is in remarkably good shape considering the difficulty of the mining there.
