Item Description

There are literally tons of pyrite coming out of Navajun, but not so many in aesthetic, undamaged arrangements as we would wish. The cube faces are bright and show, in places, interesting growth terraces that look like an intricate printed circuit board (see picture). Note that in the process of excavation, most such crystals pop out and are thus reattached to the matrix (here it looks like one is, and one is not, but is always hard to tell). Crystal size here is to 3 cm. Top quality specimen in this size range for a representative specimen good enough for any collection!
