As would be expected with this crystal habit, each face is pentagonal and heavily striated.  From the Quiruvilca mine in Santiago de Chuco Province, Peru, the many attached smaller Pyrite crystals are themselves are each around 1.7 cm across. A delightful cluster of very well formed Pyrite crystals from Peru.
