Spanish pyrite from a mine in the tiny town of Navajun is world famous for its sharp, nearly perfect cubic crystals. This is an amazing group that features 9 cubes that are penetrating twins, so they appear to have grown into/through each other. The crystals on this piece feature smooth, bright crystal faces that act like flashing mirrors, and are colored a rich, brassy gold. The crystal edges are razor sharp, and most of the corners are perfect.  The largest cube is 3" from tip-to-opposite tip and 1.8" on the longest edge. Specimens like this are rare and highly prized by collectors.
