Description:Exceptional marcasite from the famous Panasqueira Mine and the Art Soregaroli Collection. Striking parallel-growth opposing clusters of lustrous, metallic bronzy/brassy tabular marcasite crystals with classic cockscomb edges are dramatically perched atop the mounded massive arsenopyrite matrix covered with complimentary glassy, translucent calcite rhombs. The impressive doubly terminated spearpoint blades reach 4.8 cm. Complete all-around and pristine, this is an outstanding and very aesthetic 360-degree marcasite combination from Panasqueira. Marcasite from here is resistant to alteration, making it highly desirable to collectors. Classic combination material.
