Detailed Description

A classy specimen featuring blocky arsenopyrite crystals with pale muscovite giving a nice contrast. The arsenopyrite crystals are well-formed and the prism faces are bright and lustrous. The terminations are composed of a myriad of parallel faces. In excellent condition, a very slight rub in a spot on the lower of the two large crystals, hard to discern without magnification, and facing away from view from the optimal viewing angle. Stands perfectly for display as photographed – a very fine arsenopyrite!
