Exceptional historical specimen. Bright golden-brassy pyrite balls on stacked galena crystals (if you take a closer look you'll see that the galena crystals are well developed, even showing twinning) with a few fluorite and quartz crystals. Very rare specimen. You won't find botryoidal pyrite on galena from this locality anywhere else.

Shipping to Africa, Asia, Australia a.o. might cost a few Euros more. Please enquire.
