This is a lustrous specimen of hematite, in the beautiful "iron rose" habit. The rosette form is formed by many partial layers of crystallization. The cluster is notable for its striking structure as well as its color, which is a rich and lustrous gunmetal grey. It has been mounted for display on a 1” clear base. This is a unique specimen as it is from an American locality, and this area is not normally known for its fine hematite specimens, but rather its topaz and beryl. This raises its value! This small beauty is an excellent size, and would make a unique addition to mineral collections of any level and expertise.

Dimensions: 0.75” x 0.75” x 1.13” (19mm x 19mm x 29mm). Mounted on 1.00” clear base.
