At least 2 intergrown Pyrite "sun" concretions rest on a black shale base. These suns generally do not exceed 2.4" (6 cm) in diameter, and since they are intergrown, I will consider them as a single unit. It is in very good condition, showing only one small area of visible damage, and has the standard pale golden coloration and metallic luster of its species. Its black shale base has been lacquered to strengthen it and to deepen its color and brighten its luster.
