Calcite on pyrite
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Cadgebut Mine, near Broome, Western Australia (state), Australia <br /><br />8" across <br /><br />This piece was one of the few preserved from one of Australia's only known Mississippi Valley Type deposits. It consist of colorless, disk-shaped crystals on a matrix of banded marcasite and sphalerite. It is definitely one of the better specimens of its type to be mined from this locality.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was formerly in the collection of Jeff Rondello of Adelaide, South Australia.  I bought it during a visit to his home in 2014.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo  by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia </p>
