The unique and incredible beauty of Pyrite is so alluring that it has been known not only to capture the imagination of individuals but in many cases, inspire them to pursue a life in minerals. Such is the case with Daniel Ullibarri. As a child in Mexico, he collected minerals that he kept in a small treasure chest at home. To him, the colors, textures, and shapes of these minerals made these stones priceless. But the best was yet to come.

Daniel’s love of nature’s artistry followed him to the University of Arizona where he took an elective in geology and met Pedro Ansorena, the owner of a Pyrite mine in Navajun, Spain, famous for its abundance of the most perfect cubic specimens. Meeting Pedro and being introduced to the world of Pyrite was a pivotal moment that changed Daniel’s life and career path. “The first time I saw Pyrite, I couldn’t believe how perfect it was, both geometrically and aesthetically,” said Daniel. “How was this possible? I immediately developed a passion for Pyrite, and knew I wanted to share its exquisite natural beauty with the world.”

It’s pure science behind why Pyrite is so perfect. Pyrite crystals naturally occur and crystallize in cubic formation to create a crystal that looks like it has been cut and polished by a jeweler. In 2022, Daniel purchased the mine in Navajun. It was a dream come true. The Pyrite Daniel shares today with the world is completely embedded in rock and must be carefully and methodically extracted by hand using a chisel and hammer. It’s astounding how beautiful these jewels of the earth are without the need for polishing or cutting.

To create this series of 53 Pyrite Cubes, it has taken Daniel years and years to find the perfect specimens to add to the collection. All 53 pieces gradually increase in size, from the smallest cube (2 millimeters) to the largest (4 centimeters), excavated in different years and different locations in the mine.
