Explore Elegant Quartz, Crystals Shoot and more!

8.4 x 6.4 x 2.9 cm. This Eastern European specimen looks like a pile of bright gold sitting in a nest of fine quartz crystals! These pyrites are just so bright and pristine, with pretty striations on their faces. The contrast with the silky, slender and elegant quartz crystals is gorgeous. Remember, this is not the much more common Peruvian material! Copyright © Rob Lavinsky & irocks.com
