15.8 x 11.1 x 5.4 cm. A large and glorious pyrite specimen from a classic Mexican locality not well-known for large and glorious pyrite specimens! Collector Dave Stoudt, according to his records, evidently cherry-picked this piece from a dealer before the opening of the 2005 Tucson Show. It features rounded masses of small, tightly integrown crystals of complex form, intergrown with crystals of light grey calcite.
