This is an outstanding miniature of a splendent, bronze colored pyrrhotite crystal, 2.3 cm in length and partially wreathed by a quartz crust. Found in 1989 at the Cambokeels Mine, Weardale by a miner: E. Golightly. The contrast of the metallic crystal and the quartz crust is outstanding. This is a very rare, aesthetic, and unusually sharply isolated crystal for the finds here which came at the very end of the mine's working life. It is a dramatic piece from any locale, but particularly significant for an example of the species from England
