A group of golden calcite crystals with glassy white barite crystals. The calcite crystals are sharp with a silky lustre and nice colour. They exhibit orange fluorescence. In very good condition, with some incomplete crystals. Seems to have been reinforced from the underside. A nice display specimen from the Steve Szilard collection.
