|Pyrite on Calcite
|Strickland Quarry, Collins Hill, Portland, Middlesex County, Connecticut
|Quartz matrix with pockets coated colorless calcite(?) in rounded spherules and many octahedral pyrite crystals. Possibly the colorless mineral is actually well crystallized albite as it fluoresces cherry-red. Unusual specimen from this famous pegmatite.
