This is a super piece of rare Pyrosmalite as well developed, six-sided olive-brown crystals from the typelocality Nordmark in Sweden. The crystals are sharp edged, highly lustrous and very good terminated. This is, for that what it is, an almost pristine specimen. Exceeding hard to get such items nowadays on the mineral market and they are consequently in demand.
