A fibrous calcite from Mount Papandayan, West Java, Indonesia. Fibrous calcite grows radially to form this material. It displays a distinctive yellow, orange and black banding. The orange and yellow colours are mainly caused by finely dispersed Realgar. Pyrite is the cause of the black veins. “Jasper” is a misnomer, as it contains no quartz.
