Huanzala, Peru

Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: Pyrite
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Specimen
Dimensions (in cm): Misure: 16.5x12x7.5 cm
Origin (Region/ City): Huanzala
Origin (Country): Peru

Pyrite is an extremely beautiful mineral, its colour is like gold, but with a very different structure. The color is so similar to deserve the nickname of ‘Fools Gold’, although there are actually fairly simple methods to distinguish them.
Pyrite, for most of the time, has streaked cubic forms, with perfectly parallel lines, but can also occur in forms more similar to gold nuggets. The differences lie in consistency (pyrite crumbles while gold distorts), and composition: pyrite, being a sulphate, emanates sulphur fumes if placed in contact with fire, that is not the case with gold.
This beautiful specimen has a shape in cubic blocks, very well defined, and extremely harmonic to the eye, a beautiful collector's item.

Size: W16.5 x D12 x H7.5 cm
Weight: 1.9 kg
Origin: Huanzala, Peru

    De bol bleek bij ontvangst een diepe groef over de halve lengte te hebben die niet vermeld stond in de omschrijving. De verkoper erkent probleem. Maar zelf vind ik terugsturen echter teveel gedoe

    Response by seller
    It is a natural part of the wood veins, so we had no problem to acknowledge the fact, and it is clearly visible in the photos.
    We handled the problem in a professional manner, and there are still no problems with a full refund.
    Our first negative feedback comes from a "problem" that we don't even realize
