The specimen's display face is covered with abundant, light grey scalenohedral calcite crystals which reach 1.5 cm. These calcite are mostly opaque at the root and become translucent moving towards the termination. Pyrite microcrystals are scattered about on the calcites. A nice miniature from a coal mine not known for its mineral specimen production (Mindat lacks mineral photos for this locality). A few minor calcite cleaves along the edges but overall condition is very good. Sits nicely for display on its naturally flat base.
