15PR12 Pyrite on Quartz
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Prov., Peru
10.3x 6.8x 6.0 cm
$485

A single pyrite cube, nicely isolated on a quartz matrix.  That isolation is extremely usual-- 99.999% of the specimens from this mine are solid pyrite, typically tightly packed groups of crystals.  There is avery small ~1.5 mm chip next to one of the corners. 

The ones with quartz always seem to be the most sought after, though unfortunately they are considerably less common.
