Wonderful specimens again! The 22 cm calcite from Montemerano reminds me of a coral :-)

Thank you, Tobi.

If you like that coral-like calcite, a similar specimen (for size and locality) is waiting for you, as a friendly gift, when you plan your holidays in Tuscany. A warm greeting.

Here a large plate of pyrite with sulphur from Niccioleta mine.

Best regards.
Sante
