Specimen # 200549
Mineral: Pyrite
Location: Bargers Quarry, Lexington, Rockbridge Co., Virginia, USA
Size: 3.1 x 3.0 x 3.0 cm


A group of sharp trisoctahedral pyrite crystals. The trisoctahedron is an unusual form to see as the dominant form in a pyrite crystal – in this case, the trisoctahedral faces are intricately stepped. These crystals also exhibit small cube faces. In excellent condition. A super piece from the Pete Richards collection – he personally collected it on March 27, 1988.
