Two composite cubes of brassy-golden Pyrite sit atop a small plate of etched Calcite crystals over a matrix of massive Quartz and dark grey slate.  The crystals, which measure approximately 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.0 cm and 1 x 1 x 1 cm, are built from aggregates of tiny Pyrite crystals and the smaller has a overall iridescence of peacock blues and pinkish-red.  A good small miniature from Herdorf in Altenkirchen, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.
