Pyrite, Quiruvilca District, Santiago de Chuco Province, La Libertad, Peru Small cabinet 5 x 6 x 8 cm $450. Online 2/27
Super bright, brassy group of pyrite crystals stacked up in a mounded shape. Basically pure octahedron faces with very slight cubic modifications and some attractive edge bevels which are likely dodecahedrons. These used to be abundant on the market and easily obtained but the quantity has drastically dropped in recent years and prices have significantly risen. Single octahedrons to 4 cm on edge. Very excellent condition and displays from a variety of angles. Roy Smith Collection. Mined c. late 1980s.
