Pyrite specimens are not uncommon, but top-notch pieces like this one are surprisingly rare. You'll fully appreciate the quality when seen in person on this exceptionally eye-catching, highly sculptural specimen.  The cubic pyrite crystals are up to 1" on edge, and are very flashy and reflective.  The color is a glowing, brassy golden yellow. The faces of the crystals have deep striations, which are the parallel grooves on the crystal faces which are caused by a crystal alternating between cubic and pyritohedral crystal faces as it grows.
