A small cluster of Pyrites rests on the quartz base of this specmien. The crystals in the cluster are in fair condition, as many of them are damaged, and reach diameters of nearly 0.4" (1 cm). They are mostly cubic in form, but have some faint pyritohedral influence. All have a pale-golden color and a metallic luster. The cluster lies adjacent to a sphalerite cluster that has a definite weathered appearance, though its luster is still bright. The quartz base acts as a matrix for countless more tiny Pyrite crystals and grains.
