11533: Calcite and Pyrite
Naica, Mun. de Saucillo, Chihuahua, Mexico
Miniature - 3.4 x 3.3 x 3.0 cm (1.3 x 1.3 x 1.2 inches)
56 grams (0.12 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

A single, translucent, and nearly white calcite crystal having no obvious point of attachment. (The base might be a healed break.) Growth features make the crystal faces somewhat rough. A few small pyrite crystals plus an unidentified green mineral on the base. Modest pink fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave UV. A few trivial bruises are noted, but not a distraction. Displays just fine without needing a stand.
