This large Pyrite specimen from Spain has 2 large primary cubes and one small cube corner sticking out of one of the faces of the large cubes. The biggest cube measures 4.8cm wide! The condition is excellent with no significant damage to the cubes. Very sharp corners and edges. Just some extremely minor chipping along one edge and corner, but the cubes are essentially pristine. This beautiful 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.
