Description

Japanese classic: some pyrite crystals in a glass vial from the J. Sasamoto collection. The label suffered somewhat from the pyrite oxidation products (it was in the vial originally, i cleaned the pyrite and put a plastic cover around the label to protect it). Comes from the Krantz stock of japanese minerals. Not often seen and from a mine that closed as late as of 1971 - this specimen is of course much older. Size is for the vial.
