15PR01 Pyrite on Quartz
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Prov., Peru
15.5x 10.2x 7.5 cm
$3800

A very beautiful large cabinet specimen of cubic pyrite, aesthetically perched on a matrix of quartz crystals.  There are a couple chips, but this specimen is unusually beautiful, even considering how incredibly prolific this mine has been.  Unlike 99.999% of these, the crystals are distinct, and the quartz matrix provides a welcome contrast-- they are usually tight clusters of crystals.

There isn't too much I can say that the pictures dont-- It's a beautiful and very well balanced piece-- and it certainly stands out among the literally millions of other Huanzala pieces out there.
