APM01 Pyrite on Quartz with Scheelite
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Prov., Peru
10.3x 7.2x 5.1 cm
$485

A lovely cabinet sized sample of pyrite on quartz, featuring a sharp cubic crystal lying in a bed of quartz crystals.  While the piece is quite attractive, it is also rather interesting mineralogically-- there are a number of small brownish scheelites also present on the piece.  Scheelite is known from this location, but very very rarely encountered.  

A few of the quartz crystals towards the center of the piece are sheared, but the piece displays exactly as shown.
