Thanks! I do love it, it's so fragile though

I've never seen pyrite crumble like that. Usually it's pretty stable.

Very nice specimen!  Might be the mineral Marcasite which looks has the same chemical make-up as Pyrite, but Marcasite unstable and crumbles into a powder with time.

Good though on the marcasite. There is actually a little cube formation here and there. Hard to see here
