ID: CC15092
A showy, bright metallic golden Pyrite crystal from the Valle Giove stope in the Rio Mine Rio Marina on the island of Elba, Italy.  This mine exploited a hematite deposit which contained a well-crystallised vein of pyrite.  The sharp-edged pyritohedral crystal has lightly striated pentagonal faces with a base which, across the area of original attachment to the matrix, has recrystallised in an aesthetic complex array of linear crystal faces.  A terrific Pyrite from the isle of Elba.
