A stunning, off-matrix group of mirror-bright, metallic gold Pyrite pyritohedron crystals, the largest of which measures to between 4 and 5 cm according to the axis. 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.
