Cubical Pyrite

I thought this was so interesting — cubical pyrite, exemplar on its rock mother with an antiquity of 120 million years, coming fron Navajun (La Rioja, Spain), by Jesús Manuel Nieto Bobadilla of Alicante, Spain.

Wow, I love that picture! Pyrite crystals are often attractive but I love how these are peeping out of the host rock 🙂
