Description:This superb Huanazla pyrite combination was very difficult to photograph, due to the numerous smooth faces of the mirror-bright, brass-yellow pyritohedrons. Most Huanzala pyrites have striated faces. The architecture of this pristine, sculptural 360-degree plate is outstanding. The intergrown pyrites reach 1.8 cm and the clusters of black sphalerite crystals and small very sharp matte-gray galena cuboctahedrons are super accessories. Specimens of this pyrite style and combination quality are RARE and are highly desirable. Another super example of world-class pyrites from Huanzala. Valued in the Gallery at $800. MUCH, MUCH better in person!!
