This is a pyrite thumbnail specimen from Huanzala Mine, Huanuco Department, Peru. Pyrite is an iron-disulfide mineral that has gained the nickname 'fool's gold' due to the faint bronze-gold color and because they sometimes occur together in mines. They often grow in beautiful crystal formations, including perfect cubes in some instances, and they are also often found as a replacement mineral in fossils.
This specimen is approximately 1.8cm x 1.4cm x 1.9cm. You will also receive a free 'perky' display box and a label with the mineral name and locale where it was mined.
