This is an extremely rare form of pyrite on calcite, and we have only seen a couple of other specimens like this previously. It is called "Mercedez" calcite because of how the golden pyrite is in the shape of a perfect Mercedez Benz emblem. The face of the specimen is completely covered in calcite crystals, each of which has shiny, glitting, gold pyrite on the terminations. What the photos cannot capture is how shiny the pyrite is. The condition is very good, but there is one cleaved calcite crystal and one partially dinged one on the front side.
