Pyrite on Quartz

ID: CC780
A well presented specimen of a Pyrite ball nestled amongst prismatic Quartz. The Pyrite is lustrous golden crystal with complex multistepped crystal growth, dominantly spherical but with slight flattening indicating an underlying pyritohedral crystal form. The crystal measures 35mm across. The translucent Quartz adds an interesting backdrop.
