This specimen is so incredible that at first it looks man-made, but the perfectly placed pyrite in the center of fish-scale-like calcite is 100% natural. The thin, white calcite crystals are scattered randomly across the face of the host rock, and in the center of each calcite disc is an iridescent pyrite crystal. The pyrite crystals vary in color from orange to green to blue, and they really sparkle when illuminated. The backside is all matrix, but when displayed all you see is the calcite & pyrite. The condition is good with some cleavages obviously where the piece was trimmed. 

Comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
