Reiner Mielke July 06, 2012 01:36AM You sure that isn't a pseudomorph of pyrite after pyrrhotite?

Sure looks like one. Check the hardness.

Also, Pyrrhotite tends to be magnetic, while pyrite does not.

Thanks Nik, The Trepca pyrrhotites respond well to a magnet. An even easier check than hardness.
