EY98AE5: Aggregate of cubic Pyrite crystals with echeloned growths and polycrystalline formations on the cube faces. They are very well defined, bright and on a Dolomite matrix and with lenticular Calcite crystals. While well known and relatively common at Trepča, Pyrite is not easily found there as significant collectible samples and less so with such quality as this.
