Three Pyrite cubes rest in the pale gray host rock of this hand specimen. The smallest cube, measuring about 0.1" (3 mm) in diameter, is badly damaged and incomplete, but the larger ones are in very good condition, showing light damage, and measure up to 0.5" (1.3 cm) along an edge. All have excellent form, with very well-defined edges and clean faces, and show the standard pale golden color and metallic luster of their species.
