Acicular scalenohedrons of lustrous and translucent, colorless calcite, to 1.5 cm in length nearly cover an amber yellow fluorite crystal, 9 cm on an edge. Highly unusual iridescent blebs of oxidized chalcopyrite are scattered on the fluorite crystal. Mined in 1986 and from the Ross Lillie collection. RCL#1248. (priced at $2500 formerly, it IS rather unique and unusual!)
