Size: Miniature

Location: PřÝbram
Central Bohemia Region
Bohemia

Description: A fascinating specimen of Calcite and Pyrite from the PřÝbram mining district of Bohemia in the Czech Republic. A solid matrix of glassy, clear Calcite, showing cleaved rhombohedral faces on the base, is coated in an extremely thin film of silvery-golden Pyrite, above which platy and stubby milky-grey Calcite crystals protrude. From the display face, the specimen appears to be a solid matrix of Pyrite, but when examined edge-on, the pyrite is seen to be a film of probably only a few atoms thick.
