Here is a fine pyrite specimen that is and eye-catching, highly sculptural specimen. The cubic pyrite crystals are up to 1.2" on edge, and are very flashy and reflective.  The color is a glowing, brassy golden yellow. The faces of the crystals have thin striations; these are the parallel grooves on the crystal faces which are caused by a crystal alternating between cubic and pyritohedral crystal faces as it grows.
