Item Description

The Eagle mine is probably best known for its Pyrite specimens, but good matrix Pyrites are not terribly common. This is a nice display piece from the Eagle mine featuring small, sharp, lustrous, bright golden metallic color Pyrite crystals on tan "discs" of Siderite (which are coating underlain Pyrite). The piece is in fantastic shape overall. A great full sized miniature piece of this well known material from this now defunct locality.
