Specimen # 102146
Mineral: Pyrite
Location: Pyrite, Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Province, Huanuco Dept., Peru
Size: 6.3 x 5.9 x 5.8 cm


This is a striking display piece, and just a super specimen for the combination of crystal forms – it combines the pyritohedron (pentagonal dodecahedron), octahedron and trisoctahedron. The crystals are sharp, and the pyritohedrla and octahedral faces are mirror-bright, while the trisoctahedral faces are lightly textured. In excellent condition, no damage, a couple of small incomplete crystals around the right-hand back edge. Stands perfectly for display as photographed.
