A small "Pyrite Sun" rests on the ample black shale base of this specimen. The sun has dimensions of 3.9 x 3.0" (9.9 x 7.6 cm) and is in excellent condition, showing no damage. It has a pale golden color and a metallic luster, and was likely broken out of the base and then re-set. The black shale base is cracked and likely coated with a thin, clear lacquer to stabilize it.
