19580: Pyrite - $75
Ross County, Ohio
Large cabinet - 15.5 x 8.4 x 6.8 cm (6.1 x 3.3 x 2.7 inches)
Weight - 1290 grams (2.84 pounds)

A large and lustrous club-shaped pyrite specimen, with interesting crystal shape. The crystal morphology suggests marcasite, but chemical analysis of many similar specimens indicate pyrite. So maybe this is a pseudomorph of pyrite after marcasite? I've had this specimen for a few years now and it doesn't have the musty odor associated with decomposing marcasite, so I believe this specimen stable. A few bald spots on the back, but what I would consider as the display face is pristine.
