The pyrite from Navajun is renowned for its sharp, nearly perfect cubic crystals. This is one of the finer groups I've seen. The cubes are twins, so they appear to have grown into each other. The 17 crystals on this piece feature smooth, bright crystal faces that act like flashing mirrors. The crystal edges are razor sharp, and the corners are almost all perfect. The largest crystal measures 2.7" from opposite tip to tip, and 1.7" on the longest edge. This superb piece came from the 2018 mining season, one of the best in recent memory.
