The pyritohedral crystals on this Peruvian pyrite specimen are very sharp, with mirror-bright luster.  The crystals are striated, due to oscillating growth; each striation is actually a tiny stair step.  There are also some scattered crystals of blackjack sphalerite growing in several areas on the piece, which provide dramatic contrast. This is a fine specimen of pyrite, with a large, almost 2" crystal along with some smaller ones, and all are in very fine condition.
