Pyrite Huanzala Mine, Huanuco Department, Peru Herb Obodda, Marty Zinn Small Cabinet,
6 x 4.2 x 4 cm
Striking Pyrite from Huanzala, one of the world’s best localities for Pyrite. Each crystal has gorgeous, bright striated faces, with corners modified by the octahedron. The largest crystal is nearly 3.2 cm, and it rests on a matrix of perhaps a hundred smaller, equally brilliant, Pyrite crystals. The condition of the specimen, as well as the aesthetics, are superb. It is no wonder this was once in the collections of Marty Zinn and Herb Obodda.

Gold Eagles Nest Mine, Placer Co., California, USA Small Cabinet,
8.8 x 6.5 x 1.0 cm
Eagles Nest golds are of course the “staple” of the modern collector of crystallized golds. There are a lot of them, as the mine is commercially mined ONLY for the specimens that come out of it. Nevertheless, there are golds and there are Golds, ones that stand out among the crowd. This is a superb and sculptural piece with unusual elegance, finely crystallized on both sides! It is not just “big,” it is dramatic. Joe Budd Photos.
