This amazing specimen was found in 1971, inside a block of very messy quartz. The quartz has been poslished into a square shape so the arsonopyrite can be best seen. This is an exceptionally rare and hugely visible quartz inclusion. The razor sharp arsenopyrite crystal is just perfect in shape, and most important is the crystal can be viewed from any angle, as the quartz is so clear.The very bright,perfect metal crystal, floats totally , pristine, frozen in the quartz. This piece was obtained from a very large and messy quartz piece that had sat at the entrance to the “Old 45 mine” collected by and cut by Bob Reece, of Ballina, in the early 1970s.
