This large display piece consists of a black shale base that holds 2 Pyrite "suns". These flat concretions are in excellent condition and reach up to 3.2 x 2.6" (8.0 x 6.6 cm). Both are somewhat irregular in shape and have the standard pale golden color and metallic luster, but also show iridescent red, green and orange colors. The shale base has been lacquered to strengthen it and make it appear darker.
