An exceptionally attractive Calcite from a new find in China! Thin, white, hexagonal Calcite plates in an elongate cluster have only the top portions festooned in shimmering, tiny pyrite crystals looking as though the top edges and faces have been dipped in gold glitter for a remarkable effect! Simply elegant! We have seen thousands of calcite from China. This is something new. Photos do not convey well the quality and sparkle that come from a video, or seeing this in person. It is ...different. A very 3-dimensional work of natural art.
