This interesting thumbnail specimen consists of a cluster of Pyrite pseudomorphs. All are in excellent condition and do not exceed 0.5" (1.3 cm) in length. They have the form of thick orthorhombic blades and are well-preserved in that shape. Their pale golden color and metallic luster is standard for their species, and a cluster of tiny marcasite blades appears to serve as a base. The piece is hot-glued to a flat, square acrylic base.
