One of two very fine Peruvian pyrites in this auction, from different mines. This is a sharp cluster of octahedrons, the largest measuring 4 cm tip-to-tip. The cluster is flat on the bottom where removed from the pocket, and sits up beautifully all by itself, with the big crystal canted at a perfect angle. GORGEOUS and better in person! 5.3 x 4.2 x 4.1cm
