A complete floater of brilliantly lustrous, golden pyrite and elongated white quartz, brought to us from the around 4700 meters high mining area Mundo Nuevo. The piece is in best condition and shows a very distinct composition: Attached to a beautiful matrix-like cluster of pyrite and quartz is a massive single pyrite crystal, around 6 cm in diameter, that exhibits the more unusual dodecahedral shape in a modified, rounded, bevelled and striated way. Very well shaped and dramatically situated on this beautiful piece!

Malkhan pegmatite field, Krasnyi Chikoy, Transbaikalia, Eastern-Siberian Region, Russia

Marvelous and intriguingly picturesque, this paragenesis shows a well balanced combination of tourmaline, mica and feldspar. The whole group of crystals is arranged atop a large white feldspar crystal that is well visible at the pieces left side (the feldspar is broken and re-crystallized at the unspectacular backside as you can very well see in the video). The lower half of the piece is dominated by nice blue cleavelandite, associated with white mica. The further up you look, the more you get excited about the rich presence of gemmy pink rubellite, sparkling and dominant with brilliant color and quality! A fantastically aesthetic specimen in near-perfect condition that impresses with a great variety of beautiful details!
