Pyrrhotite rosette on Arsenopyrite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
4.2 x 3.6 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $750


A flower form composed of thin blades of Pyrrhotite crystals esthetically perched on sharp crystals of Arsenopyrite. A rare specie from the famed Yaoganxian mine these were found almost 2 decades ago, we have not seen any since. The main flower is 3 CM across with a dark metallic patina. The Arsenopyrite crystals are highly lustrous and sharp. Overall in fine condition, one edge of the main flower has what seems to be a small old rehealed break or edge contact, not at all distracting, otherwise the display side is perfect. A very choice Sulfide from anyplace and a superb piece for the legandary Yaoganxian or for that matter all of China.
