This gorgeous super clear quartz has pyrite growing inside of it! (It has been circled with a black sharpie but if you want to remove it just wipe away with rubbing alcohol.) These incredible pieces were ethically mined from the earth in Brazil. This one has several tiny pyrite cubes floating inside of it like confetti. It weighs just half an oz and measures about 1.5 inches tall.
