Area 29 North, Main Level, Nanisivik Mine, Nanisivik, Baffin Island, Nunavut Territory, Canada
The area of the Nanisivik Mine where the blocky pyrites occurred. All the pyrite here grew in epitaxy on the marcasite which later pseudomorphed to only pyrite.
This epitaxy gives the connection between the pyrite and marcasite structures. The pyrites are blocky cubes heavily modified by dodecahedral, pyritohedral, trapezohedral, and octahedral forms.
