- Pyrite and sulfides
This is a spectacular display-quality piece with good aesthetics. The contrast of colors, between the brassy matrix of small chalcopyrite and the mirror bright luster, and silver color of sperrylite, is spectacular. The sperrylite crystal is 6.6 mm across and it is very sharply crystatllized. Sperrylite is one of the world's great platinum minerals in crystalline form and specimens of quality, and of size, came only from a small deposit found here some years ago. Now, they are very scarce on the market.
