Pyrite on Matrix from the Milpillas Mine, Mexico

I was recently mentioned on Page 6 of the latest Mineralogical Record What's New in the Mineral World? The notable new minerals of mine that they wrote about were the pyrite crystals on matrix from the Milpillas Mine. Apparently I am one of the few dealer swith the pyrite crystals on matrix. It was nice to get recognition for what I've been offering for the last 10 months on this site. Below are more specimens of pyrite in matrix from this find:

 SPECIAL NOTE: These pyrite crystals show an interesting paragenesis. First the pyrite crystals fully formed, then went through some cataclysmic event that fractured most of the crystals. Then the bornite coating formed on the surfaces -- on the crystal faces AND on the fractured surfaces. Finally all crystal parts were frozen in quartz-clay matrix. The segments of the same pyrite crystals are frequently found side-by-side with white clay filling the fracture joints. Other pyrite crystals are found in matrix incomplete, being separated from the other parts of the crystal. Complete pyrite crystals are rare.
