Pyrite (Shown in Book)
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 4.6 x 2.5 cm
Leonard Mine, Butte, Montana, USA
Ex. Dr. Peter Bancroft
This has to be the most elegant, sculptural cluster pulled out of the mine, or damn close! It is simply exquisite in form, and of a quality so high it makes for a competition-class pyrite small cabinet piece. The specimen is prominently figured in the chapter on Butte mines, in Gem & Crystal Treasures.
