Pyrite (Pyritohedral) with Dycrasite and Friburgite
Eagle Mine, Gilman District, Eagle Co.
Colorado, United States
5.2 X 4.8 CM (miniature)
price: $50


well crystallized and classic for the mine this is almost all Pyrite with some Galena matrix. Magnification shows the "ugly grey-black" coatings on the pyrites are micros of Friburgite in "cruller" form with what appears to be Dycrasite. A good reference piece for this prolific mine and not that ugly overall!
