Arsenopyrite Pseudo after Pyrrhotite
Santa Eulalia, Aguiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.3 x 5.5 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $1650


An exceptional, elegant Pseudomorph ex. Ed Swoboda's fine collection of Psuedos. Likely mined pre 1970, there is nothing like this on the market. Tapered, curving crystals of the original Pyrrhotites formed a very esthetic cluster and reached to 5.3 CM long. The replacement by Arsenopyrite seems to be complete and has a brilliant sparkling luster. Minor associated Sulphides are seen but this is almost entirely Arsenopyrite/ Pyrrhotite. In great condition as seen, this displays well from all angles. A fine addition to any Pseudo collection, Mexican or Sulphide suite,
