Here is a dramatic and rare pyrite crystal from the Merelani Hills, which is best known for tanzanite.  The crystal is very sharp and has mirror-bright brassy lustre. This is an exceptionally large and rare pyrite from this locale, which is now producing some of the finest pyrites in the world.  The crystal habit is a complex combination of pyritohedron, cube, octahedron, and trapezohedron.  This crystal has phenomenal luster – an exceptionally bright, metallic sheen brightness that acts like a mirror.  The top face, which is a perfect pentagon, is all there and is damage free; the sides are incomplete.
