New specimen - Pyrite, Dolomite, Calcite and Quartz from Cavnic/Romania:

During a rock swap with a friend yesterday, I could not resist that giant piece, which is my largest specimen now. I call it "The Romanian landscape" and this large specimen from the classic Cavnic locality appeals to me because it really looks like a "history" of mineral growth; the combination in which the quartz and the pyrite were grown on each other and then got coated by calcite and dolomite is just fascinating. My fellow had this specimen for many years and I often held it in my hands, admiring this "landscape" of four different minerals. But when he offered it to me in exchange for some other specimen, I could not say no.
Maybe not a highly aesthetic specimen at first sight, but as a mineral lover I have a lot of joy watching all the details of this huge centerpiece :-)
