This is an aesthetic miniature composed of splendent, brassy yellow, pyrrhotite crystals to 1.7 cm in length. The crystals, intergrown, are elegant and slightly curving. Found in 1990 at the 320-325 level of the Cambokeels Mine in Weardale: Pyrrhotite is in fact extremely rare in the UK and these distinct crystals are significant for the species from this country. More than that, they are uniquely pretty and aesthetic, as well.
