In my mind there are two minerals that Dalnegorsk is famous for: Ilvaite and Pyrrhotite. Of course, the area produced other fine minerals as well – but in my mind these complex specimens with more than just 2 minerals are most interesting. This hand sized specimen is in very good condition. Probably your eye will be catched by the large galena first. On the second sight you will see the “golden” pyrrhotite on top all surrounded by smaller quartz crystals. Looking closer you will find high lustrous sphalerite crystals as well. This specimen has a lot of details to explore!
