Gorgeous multi crystals mineral specimen for personal crystal colections with an array of miniature Gold Pyrite clusters, White Clacite crystals and surging Sphalerite from a Dolomite matrix pepperd with the most tiniest needle Quart crystals.
WHAT IS PYRITE:
The mineral pyrite or iron pyrite, also known as fool's gold, is an iron sulfide.
Pyrite is the most abundant sulfide mineral.
Pyrite's metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold.
The color has also led to the nicknames brass, brazzle, and Brazil, primarily used to refer to pyrite found in coal.
WHAT IS WHITE CALCITE:
White Calcite is a common calcium carbonate mineral that crystallizes in the form of masses and cubic formations (due to the layering of the crystal structure).
It can be found as pearly/chalky white, as well as pale white and even light grey.
When seen as transparent and optical, it is known as Iceland Spar.
WHAT IS SPHALERITE:
Sphalerite (sometimes spelled sphaelerite) is a sulfide mineral.
It is the most important ore of zinc.
Sphalerite is found in a variety of deposit types, but it is primarily in sedimentary exhalative, Mississippi-Valley type, and volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits.
It is found in association with galena, chalcopyrite, pyrite (and other sulfides), calcite, dolomite, quartz, rhodochrosite, and fluorite.
In addition to zinc, sphalerite is an ore of cadmium, gallium, germanium, and indium. Miners have been known to refer to sphalerite as zinc blende, black-jack, and ruby blende.
Marmatite is an opaque black variety with a high iron content.
WHAT IS CLEAR QUARTZ:
Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral composed of silica (silicon dioxide)
There are many different varieties of quartz, several of which are classified gemstones. Since antiquity, varieties of quartz have been the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and hardstone carvings, especially in Eurasia.
Quartz is the mineral defining the value of 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness, a qualitative scratch method for determining the hardness of a material to abrasion.
WHAT IS DOLOMITE:
Dolomite is a common rock-forming mineral.
It is the primary component of the sedimentary rock known as dolostone and the metamorphic rock known as dolomitic marble.
Limestone that contains some dolomite is known as dolomitic limestone.
