Calcite on Quartz
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 6.5 x 3.3 cm
St. Andreasberg, Harz Mtns., Germany

Old (1936) twinned nailhead Calcite on a matrix of multi-generational quartz sprinkled with Chalcopyrites. An important piece from a classic locality for the serious Calcite collector. The striated faces have good vitreous luster, and only very minor wear in just a few spots.
