A delightful small miniature of silky bronze-golden Pyrrhotite crystals forming a 3.7 cm wide, half-hexagonal stack of very thin plates, with concentrically developed hexagonal inner plates diminishing towards the outer-centre.  The specimen is equally displayable from either side, one of which has about six lenticular milky Calcite crystals growing outwards like bracket-fungus from a tree.  From the famous mineral deposits at Dal’negorsk in Primorsky Krai, in the Far Eastern Region of Russia, a quite gorgeous specimen whose delicate and spectacular terminations remain completely undamaged.
