Sometimes two humble minerals like calcite and arsenopyrite combine to make an authentic piece of art. In its size is one of my favourites specimens from the famous Panasqueira Mines. It reminds me two the Moai sculptures, monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people from rock on the Chilean Polynesian island of Easter Island between the years 1250 and 1500. Apart from that, the crystallization of the main arsenopyrite crystals is gorgeous. 4.6 x 2.5 x 2 cm. Panasqueira Mines, Portugal. Price on request.
