Item Description

Aesthetic pyrite combination specimens, such as this striking small cabinet, are RARE from the historic iron mines of the Traversella area. An impressive 4.8 cm, lustrous, brassy, unusually rounded pyritohedron is artistically set behind a diverging spray of glassy quartz points, to 4.6 cm. The striations and pockmarks add much character to the pyrite. Pyrite and quartz specimens of this quality are RARE from the locale. The mines operated from the late Middle Ages to the mid-1900s (MINDAT). Classic and rare combination material. A fine, unsuual specimen that is also from a rare locality - extra bonus! Valued $1000-1500
