Description

A superb pyrite in combination with jet black sphalerite and minor calcite. The pyrite crystals show a really amazing habit with curved edges and concave faces - the color is intense golden and the luster is like mirror-finsihed; quality and color couldn´t be better. The crystal dimension is remarkable,too. The assemble looks very aesthetic and it´s even better in person. Looks great 360°, no significant damages to report.
