Natural Pyrite Cube Cluster. The pyrite cubes are connected, yet almost like they are floating away from the largest crystal. No Host Rock, only pyrite.
Locality: Navajún, La Rioja, Spain
Measurement: Approx. 2.9" x 2.1"x 1.6"
FYI: When mined, these pyrite cubes typically do not stay in place on the host rock unless buried deep within the matrix. Almost all of the on matrix pyrite specimens have been stabilized with some sort of epoxy or glue to keep the cubes in place. The pyrite and the host rock is all natural, so it is very common that many of these natural Spanish pyrite specimens have been reassembled, just as they were within the earth.
