This sparkly, glittering specimen consists of pyrite/marcasite pseudomorphs after pyrrhotite crystal stacks, pointing from a central core, somewhat like spikes on a medieval mace. Several of the larger spikes are incomplete, which is why this isn't a $200 specimen. Tiny, black sphalerite crystals are also scattered about. Multiple display angles not needing a stand are possible.
