Pyrite from the Tsumeb mine is not common and well crystallised specimens like this are exceedingly rare.  The primary crystal measures approximately 3.0 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm and has many similar but smaller dodecahedron crystals attached.  All faces are striated and naturally etched and have a rose-gold patina with overtones of peacock-blue iridescence.  A rare and fine example of well crystallised Pyrite from Tsumeb.
