Calcite With Galena & Chalcopyrite
Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico
Cabinet, 13.8 x 8.2 x 7.2 cm
Ex. Richard Heck
A gorgeous specimen of unusually large rhombohedral calcite festooned with sparkles! The ivory colored, large rhombohedrons fluoresce a light orange color, and are encrusted with splendent and bright crystals of galena, to 5 mm across. Bright, metallic, brassy yellow chalcopyrite crystals, to 6 mm across, are scattered about on the galena for accent. Overall a very unusual specimen with lots of eye appeal, yet a simple form overall.
