I have been lucky enough to have handled several AMAZING pyrites from the Jung collection, and this is another really exceptional one. These wonderful crystals look for all the world like ANTIQUE BRONZE! They really do have an amazingly special luster and surface, as though they were cast by a sculptor! What's more, the crystals are ranged along the top of a ridge of frosty, slender accenting quartz crystals. This specimen has such a classic beauty; exceptional! 12 x 6 x 5.5 cm
