Does anyone know where I can buy small specimen quality pyrite at
a cheap price? (...) Saw some on ebay and they wanted $5.00 for one
piece plus $11.00 for the shipping because it was coming from
I would just keep looking on eBay daily, as asking prices vary
wildly. Select only the "collectibles" category to narrow your
search, then "rocks, fossils, and minerals". On the left, choose "US
only" to minimize shipping charges and oceans-away error correction
I just did a quick check, and found a seller in Alabama,
huntingharley1999, with 3 lbs of pyrite for $19.95 with free
Also, you might try contacting the seller Dave Hanna, "DavesRocks"
on eBay, and mention my name. He's a local friend, but I'm reluctant
to give out his personal email address. It's possible he has some
pyrite, as his entire house, yard, two sheds, and a nearby warehouse
are filled with 62 years of rock-collecting. :)
I have no financial interest in transactions with these or any other
sellers on eBay.
