This is one of the finest Pyrite specimens from Elba we handled in the last years. One large pentagonal, dodecahedral (pyritohedral), metallic lustrous, brassy yellow crystals, to 7.5 cm across, perched high on matrix and associated with minor bladed Hematite. Pyrites from the island of Elba are Italian classics and among the finest European ones. This is a large single crystal with fine contrasted matrix of Hematite. Is has extremely sharp faces and super luster. One very minor imperfection is exceedingly hard to see and even unworth to report. A stunning Italian classic for highest aesthetic demands.
