This is a very rare specimen featuring a large black Calcite sitting atop large Dolomite crystals with shiny, golden Pyrites! This is easily the finest of these specimens to have come from the Chivor Mine. The Calcite crystal is included by shale giving it the black internal coloring. The outer zone of the calcite is actually clear allowing you to see into the black interior. The dolomite crystals are huge, and the pyrite crystals give the specimen some bling. Fine Calcite specimens from the Emerald Mining District of Colombia are few and far between, and this one is in excellent condition. 

We realize that the price is quite high, but it is a very special specimen, and the last time it sold to a private collector it sold for $10,000, and the value has only gone up since then. 

Comes with a custom Sunnywood base.
