Description

Textbook crystals of pyrite laid on bladed jet black lustrous hematite. The main crystal, over 4 cm in maximum size, shows exceptional golden lustre. The faces are lined by growth patterns as well, and they are sometimes curved. On the side, a second smaller crystal lies attached to it.

A great Italian classic. In very good conditions, fresh and with superb lustre. Part of a find from a few years ago, scarcely found in this quality.
