Peru is renowned for its superb Pyrites and this is a classic cluster that simply stuns the viewer with crystalline geometry, aside from any association. These are perfect pyritohedrons with a bright, brassy yellow color and metallic luster exhibiting super sharp edges and striated faces. These remarkably beautiful Pyrites show great individuality and are super flashy! The piece has exceptional aesthetics and presentation. This locality, as well as the Racracancha and Huanzala and along with the Huanzala Mine, have produced some of the best Pyrite crystals extant. The crystals are all essentially pristine on the display face, with just minor contacting and edge wear around the periphery and there are two light green Fluorite crystals in association which place this as from new finds in 2020, at this working ore mine. We have held these back, awaiting more. Sadly, although a few later pockets were found, they did not have such fine pyrite crystals in association.
