Quartz, Calcite, Pyrite
El Hammam Mine, Meknes, Morocco
20.5 x 14.3 x 4.8 cm.
A world-class display specimen from El Hammam in Morocco. It features numerous light-pink “beta” Quartz crystals arranged into the very showy formation pictured. The Quartz is hosting several groups of stacked, “poker-chip” Calcite crystals and countless tiny Pyrites. It is also sitting on a group of large, underlying Fluorite cubes. Both the Calcite and Fluorite crystals are nicely FLUORESCENT under shortwave and longwave UV light (next photo). The backside exhibits many more Calcite crystal groups, as seen below. From my personal collection, and needless to say, ONE-OF-A-KIND.
