The Yaogangxian Mine produces some of the world's finest arsenopyrite specimens. This example, composed of parallel, offset crystals, is mirror bright and accented with minor silvery muscovite, like residual spring snow persisting in mountain valleys. Displays perfectly on its acrylic base, which could easily be removed if desired. Complete and showy all around. No damage.
