Superbly defined rhombs of Siderite that are actually two pairs of penetration twins. The luster is excellent, and the habits and geometry are just about as perfect as you can get. The edges even grade to translucent, which adds to the aesthetic appeal. There is some minor edge wear in one spot, but it is insignificant compared to the overall quality of the piece. Certainly one of the finest Siderites that I have seen.
