RM1966   Marcassite

Reocín mine, Reocín, Cantabria, Spain

Marcassite specimens from Reocín mine are a classic of the Spanish mineralogy. This piece, of very good size (16 cm/ 6.3 in), is a worthy representative of this species. It presents numerous well-defined crystals, most of them showing the "cock's comb" twinned habit. The brightness is very remarkable. The specimen is more than 20 years old and does not present any alteration, favored by the carbonate matrix. A definitive piece for fine displays.
