 Locality:
Ampliación a Victoria Mine, Navajún, Comarca Cervera, La Rioja, Spain
 Dimensions: 13mm on edge pyrite

The coating around the pyrite cubes of Navajún is Cookeite, that gives them an appearance of being gift-wrapped. Here we see the Cookeite at the bottom of the cube. I believe this cookeite protects the edges of the pyrite cubes.
