Dimensions: 5.8 cm x 5.1 cm x 4.7 cm

5.8 x 5.1 x 4.7 cm. Here is one of the more interesting new finds from about 7 years ago (~2004) in Bolivia. The specimen is almost completely undamaged on the display side and is loaded with dozens of trapezohedra modified by octohedra which is a rather uncommon crystal habit for this pyrite. The largest crystal measures 11 mm across. All of the Pyrite crystals are very bright and shiny.
