RM742   Pyrite with calcite and fluorite

Villabona mines, Villabona, Llanera, Asturias, Principado de Asturias, Spain

A very rich group of pyrite crystals forming a globular aggregate, very brilliant, with an intense color and hinting cubic faces. It is disposed very aerial on the matrix with rhombohedral calcite crystals and yellow fluorite. To increase its aesthetics a single calcite crystal has grown on the pyrite. A unusual specimen for this mine where pyrite is often found in small crystals coating the fluorite.

Size: 11,0 x 7,3 x 6,5 cm.
Main crystal: 3,7 x 3,0 cm (aggr).
