10.8 x 8.4 x 6.0 cm. A flashy, rich and showy large mounded two-sided combination specimen from a new 2018 find at the Huaron mines. A striking 7.2 cm cluster of mirror-bright brass-yellow pyrite pyritohedrons, to 1.5 cm, dominates one end of the specimen. Splendent metallic-gray, artistic melted-look galena cubes, to 2.0 cm, along with sprays of gemmy quartz points highlight the other half of the piece. The underlying matrix is mostly ruby-jack sphalerite.
