A beautiful, sharp blocky crystal of calcite, largely covered with tiny marcasite crystals as is typically the case at this long-closed mine. Some of the faces have no marcasite but the tiny crystals seem to give the calcite crystal a wonderful, three-D visual. As well , there are some droplets of hydrocarbon in a couple of places on the crystal, which is also characteristic of this locality. Handsome piece that displays well!
