103mm x 86mm x 48mm

Nice multi-mineral combo specimen, highlighted by two generations of calcite. The earlier generation consists of translucent drusy light tan crystals coating colorless prismatic quartz crystals (up to 20 x 5 x 5 mm); the second generation of calcite is made up of colorless transparent to translucent sheaf-like clusters of intergrown scalenohedral calcite crystals growing atop both quartz crystals and the earlier generation of calcite. Also present is minor chalcopyrite and small clusters of pyritohedral pyrite crystals, all on an opaque dark brown sphalerite matrix.
