Magnetite (Huge Crystal)

This monstrous crystal of magnetite masses at 600 grams! It is huge, and sharp, and naturally lustrous, Past finds of magnetite from this locale have been impressive for luster and the size of the plates, but THIS crystal outstrips any I have ever seen for sheer size and importance. Except for the bottom periphery, it is complete all around. Found in late 2010.Joe Budd Photos
