Hematite (Pseudocubic)
Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 6.2 x 2.8 cm
Ex. Richard Hauck
Complexly terminated crystals of hematite to 2.6cm on a massive hematite matrix. The crystals have incredible mirror luster and are sharply formed, pseudo-cubic in fact. Some twinning appears to have occurred to some of the crystals. Nice display angle for the piece adds to the pizzazz. Minor edge wear is present on a few crystals but for the most part the crystals are in very good condition.
