Description

I got this from a local collector who says that this kind of pseudo is quite rare from Lavrion. It really is. As a matter of fact it is extremelly hard to find any decent example of a sulphide from Lavrion. This piece hosts both crystals of sphalerite and the pyrite after chalcopyrite pseudo.
