This amazing Pyrite cluster from Spain has an incredible 16 cubes on it! The crystals are all intergrown to some degree, and the largest crystal on top is 2.8cm wide. From the front size the specimen is very clean and the crystals have sharp edges and corners. On the backside several crystals have some contact damage where there were once even more crystals attached. This beautiful, aesthetic specimen comes with a custom Greenstone Mineral Base. 

These Spanish pyrites are some of the world's most amazing mineral specimens, and people often think they are man-made. But these perfect cubes are completely natural and grow like this all on their own. They're made of iron and sulphur, and the world's best pyrites come from Spain, specifically, the Victoria Mine in Navajun. When these come out of the ground they are very fragile, and as part of the normal cleaning process they detach the cubes, clean them, and then put them back together as they were originally, but now much stronger.
