Pyrite on Quartz

Pyrite on Quartz

The Spruce Claim is justly famous for its combination specimens of pyrite and quartz, and it is our belief that this large cabinet piece is one of the finest ever recovered. It features lustrous striated pyrites to 5cm growing on, and penetrated by, a radiating corona of translucent to transparent quartz crystals. Although the pyrites are the center of attention, the quartzes reward a closer look, not only to discover the complex relationships between the pyrite and quartz, but also to take note of the several forms the quartz takes, with Dauphiné, Muzo and Tessin habits represented.
