I wish the photos could capture how sparkly the marcasite is inside this glass-clear calcite because seeing it in person is really the only way to fully appreciate the beauty of this specimen. We have a cluster of clear calcite crystals that grew and then became covered with several different generations of tiny, sparkly Marcasite crystals. Then the clear calcite continue to grow over it leaving several phantom layers of marcasite inside. The condition is excellent with no repairs. The largest calcite crystal is ~4.5cm from corner to corner. 

This specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
