Arsenopyrite (twin) on Muscovite and Quartz
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref.
Hunan Province, China
4 x 3 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $330
Dec 2018

A perfect main Arsenopyrite crystal with textbook form well-perched above the matrix of Muscovite and Quartz crystals. Brilliant metallic luster, no damage and great esthetics, a very choice miniature for the specie. The main Arsenopyrite is just over 2 CM and has a penetrating crystal (twin) that is in a X form, but is not very evident from the logical display angles. From finds almost 10 years ago at Yaoganxian. Hard to photograph the brilliant luster, this is great in person.
