A handsome specimen that is a large plate of botryoidal/drusy quartz crystals wit ha partial coating of what appears to be two generations of calcite. One is a golden coloured scalenohedral calcite and the other white rhombs which could also be dolomite, I suppose. Some pyrite sprinkled around here and there. Looks like an old-time specimen from an old-time mine!
