10.6" Calcite, Pyrite and Fluorite Association - Fluorescent

 
 
 
 
 
This large specimen contains calcite and fluorite with pyrite micro-crystals. The fluorite can be viewed when looking at what could be considered the bottom of the specimen, noted by its slight green hue. Calcite crystals can be found across the top and bottom of the specimen. The pyrite druze is located in various spots between the calcite crystals.

Under short and long-wave UV lighting, the calcite fluoresces pink-orange, while the fluorite at the bottom of the specimen has a beautiful deep blue fluorescence. This specimen also comes with a display stand for preferred presentation.
