Nature at its finest! Here we have a beautiful calcite flower spray perfectly placed in the middle of a shiny, golden pyrite cluster. The pyrite crystals shine like mirrors and are up to ~1.6cm in size. The calcite flower has one cleaved crystal on the backsize, but from the front it appears in perfect condition. The photos really don't do this one justice because in person you really appreciate how dynamic the light is as it reflects off the pyrite and how the calcite flower bursts out in 3D.
