Ex. Marilyn Dodge
It is hard to argue with how aesthetic this lustrous and complex pyrite crystal is sitting in the calcite. For sheer quality, this is hard to beat for a franklin pyrite, I am told. Beyond that, it is an important historical specimen that, I am told, would have been collected in the mid-1800s. It has Harvard #113145 attached to the side and an old dealer price of $275 on the original thumb box
