A sparkling, golden yellow Pyrite cluster in very well-crystallized form with dodecahedral crystal habit.  This superb plate of Pyrite crystals is partially wrapped by a layer of tiny Pyrite crystal aggregates which exhibits a stunning glistening effect.  I bought back 6 gorgeous pieces from Austria last week (mid-Feb 2020) and I must say they really are more beautiful in person than photos and video!
