RM1348   Pyrite

Bou N'has Mine, Oumjrane area, Alnif, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Exceptional color, brightness, cubic predominant crystals with small octahedral faces, orange reflections, gold lights... We have preserved an area with a brown patina of goethite to contrast the gold color. Golden colored coatings could be due to a thin layer of chalcopyrite. A strange and aesthetic specimen. Very unusual.

Size: 7.5 x 4.5 x 3.9 cm.
Main crystal: 5 x 5 mm.
Found in 2013.
