Arsenopyrite pseudo after Pyrrhotite (Ref: AX-10-741)

Santa Eulalia, Aquiles Serdan, Chihuahua, Mexico
73mm x 55mm x 39mm
minID: W30-56Q
An exceptional, elegant Pseudomorph ex. Ed Swoboda's fine collection of Pseudos. Likely mined pre 1970, there is nothing like this on the market. Tapered, curving crystals of the original Pyrrhotites formed a very esthetic cluster and reached to 5.3 CM long. The replacement by Arsenopyrite seems to be complete and has a brilliant sparkling luster. Minor associated Sulphides are seen but this is almost entirely Arsenopyrite/ Pyrrhotite. In great condition as seen, this displays well from all angles. A fine addition to any pseudo collection, Mexican or Sulphide suite.
