Pyrrhotite rosette on Arsenopyrite (Ref: 6.2-885)

Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref., Hunan Province, China
42mm x 36mm x 32mm
minID: FLP-QQ4
$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.
