Item Description

These beautiful, lustrous pyrite floater "suns" formed between an ancient bed of shale and clay near Sparta, Illinois. This one is complete all-around, front and back and is pristine. The radial appearance of the sculptural pyrite is very interesting and the pyrite has a flashy, chatoyant shimmer. Highly representative of this unusual occurrence. This is a choice, large and pristine specimen for the find. Ex Consie Prince Collection. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON.
