Item Description

Here is a surprise for many people! In the early days, in the 1990s, we thought of the Shangbao mine often as a pyrite mine, with fluorite present! Many early specimens of pyrite came out to the market, but then it tapered off, they went away, and no more really came out after the early 2000s that I can recall. People today know it only as a a fluorite mine. However, fine pyrite, such as this, actually came from there in the start! A superb specimen, with sharp crystals to 3 cm in size. Ex Marcus Budil.
