Description

Japanese minerals are not offered very often in Europe and old specimens are very scarce to see here. This 19th century Krantz specimen is a quite large cubic lustrous pyrite crystal with incomplete backside where it was obviously grown on the matrix. Unfortunately the only locality given is "Japan" which gives some possibilities ;) Maybe the specialists chime in.
