Specimen # 102148
Mineral: Pyrite
Location: Pyrite, Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Province, Huanuco Dept., Peru
Size: 5.3 x 3.5 x 2.7 cm


A cluster of beautiful, sharp, mirror-bright pyrite crystals. These are complex crystals – the predominant crystal form is the pyritohedron, with modifications including cubic, octahedral, diploidal and trisoctahdral faces. Quite something. The octahedral faces are small triangular facs, and hey are surrounded by tiny diploidal and trisoctahedral faces. In excellent condition, a couple of tiny chips.

This is a brilliant display specimen.
