A classic golden scalenohedral Calcite crystal with sharp, lustrous faces and great form. The crystal sits on a matrix of white/grey Dolomite with Pyrite and iridescent Chalcopyrite. Not nearly as common on the market as they once were, and easily some of the most well known American Calcite specimens extant.
