One side of a Quartz crystal is covered with complex stacks of Calcite crystals. These crystals are twinned, thin, hexagonal plates and white in color. Mixed in with the Calcite crystals are small, light purple colored Fluorite crystals. Near the base of the Quartz crystal, there are golden colored Chalcopyrite crystals and black colored Ferberite crystals. The Chalcopyrite crystals are well formed but the Ferberite crystals are rather crude. The largest Ferberite crystal is not complete and appears to be the termination of a fairly large crystal. There are also small Ferberite crystals included in the Quartz crystal.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: A few of the Calcite crystals are incomplete, but it is not readily noticeable. The largest Ferberite crystal is incomplete and has a crack.
