Falcacci stope, Rio Marina, Elba Island, Tuscany, Italy
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.3 x 2.1 cm
Ex. Giancarlo Fioravanti
Choice set of three sharp, lustrous octahedra (think the Great Pyramids) of Pyrite from Elba Island. The Pyrites line up very nicely, and the largest is 1 cm on edge. The matrix is hard clay, which is typical for the Falcacci stope of Rio Marina. Really elegant in its simplicity and a rare habit for Elba.
