7.6 x 6.8 x 5.6 cm. If you can get past the fact that they are "just" pyrites, you have to admit that these PERFECT cubes on matrix from Spain are amongst the most striking crystals in the mineral kingdom. Non-mineral people usually cannot believe that they form naturally, in fact! This is a LARGE, PRISTINE cube, wonderfully isolated and fully exposed on the matrix. It measures 2.2 cm on edge and has a mirror-golden luster. A fabulous-looking specimen!
