Collector's Piece: Iridescent Pyrite on Dolomite from Shangbao Mine, China
Dimension: 5.8cm x 5.4cm x 4cm
Locality: Shangbao Mine, Leiyang Co., Hengyang, Hunan, China
A mesmerizing and sculptural cabinet Dolomite plate densely covered with sharp, highly lustrous Pyrite cubes from the well-known Shangbao Mine of China. From a one-time small find discovered in September 2020, these gorgeous pieces are three dimentional and unique. The Pyrite crystals on the piece are plentiful and in a significant size comparing with specimens of the same, very well formed and shaped. I've been lucky to be able to acquire around 15 pieces of the best. The rainbow iridescent colors on the Pyrite are insane, ranging from very bright vivid lemon-gold to blue, red and pink, outstanding! Grown on a creamy yellow Dolomite matrix and associated with a Quartz piece on the side, it is for sure a winning display piece for connoisseur collectors! Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand as pictured.
