    Myself and one other are extraction large octahedral pyrite crystals up to 30 cm so far from an abandoned mine near Brockville, ON. I want to inquire whether or not your museum would be interested in acquiring one? If so we would be interested in hearing from you. A picture can be sent if requested.
