Select cluster of gemmy and highly lustrous rhombs of Siderite completely covering the surface of the specimen. Each rhomb is very exaggerated, giving the impression of being a blade rather than a rhomb. The luster is superb, as is the gemminess. very NICE, glowing, sparkling, golden-hued EXAMPLE in a LARGE SIZE, FROM THE 1960s! Ex. Steve Smale Collection.
