Item Description

Another perfect mineral miniature specimen, passed from the noted Stahl collection to his friend Risse some time ago. While pyrite from Rio Marino was found in several large pockets over time, the style remains rare overall and fine specimens in pristine condition all the more so. This is a perfectly balanced specimen with the top luster possible, in a 4-cm pyrite crystal perched on sparing hematite matrix. Ex Stahl and Risse. This is a famous, well though of locality that has produced much tonnage, but very little of this particular combination of species.
