Iron Pyrite in Limestone Matrix

Sold by each. 
Pyrite from mines at Navajun, LaRioja, Spain are unique in the world both for their perfect cubic symmetry and for the gloss and finish of their surfaces. The old inhabitants of these lands were attracted by these surprising metallic stones that may be found in this part of La Rioja and the neighboring Soria. Proof of this are the archeological findings of the nearby celtiberic city of Contrebia Leucade, in Inestrillas, where pieces inserted in the fine frames of the mosaics have been found. Witches (there are people who talk about the properties of gemotherapy) recommend them to cure throat and stomach aches, and even to attract wealth. Pyrite (whose name comes from the Greek root pyr, fire), also known as fools gold after its misleading yellow gleam, is a sulfide mineral formed under extremely high pressures and temperatures.
Each stone is approximately 1" to 1 1/2" and may contain between 1 to 3 Pyrite Cubes.
Great conversation piece!
