Here is a very sharp, very bright crystal of pyrite from the Island of Elba – where Napoleon was exiled.  The pyrite is a shiny, brilliant brassy gold, and has formed as a pyritohedral crystal.  The crystal faces are smooth and mirror-bright, and the edges and corners are all extra sharp.  The pyrite crystal sits on a high-contrast black hematite matrix.  No damage.
