12.3" Calcite, Pyrite and Fluorite Association - Fluorescent

 
 
 
 
 
This magnificent specimen contains calcite and fluorite with pyrite micro-crystals. The fluorite can be viewed when looking at what could be considered the back of the specimen, noted by its green and purple coloration. Calcite crystals can be found across almost any location where fluorite can't be found. The pyrite druze is located in various spots between the calcite crystals, around the entire specimen.

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 sits upright naturally, allowing for aesthetic presentation of the mineral variety on this specimen.
