A STRIKING and DRAMATIC, two-sided CABINET specimen of highly lustrous, colorless to milky-white, stepped, blocky calcite rhombs preferentially dusted with chalcopyrite crystals. One side is nicely accented by a 3.5 cm, salmon-pink Baryte blade. This is CLASSIC, OLD-TIME material from the famous St. Joe #3 Mine at Balmat, New York. Very minimal bruising on such a large piece.
