This is one of the largest, equant. chromite crystals I have seen. It is usually found in tiny crystals or grains. It is an octahedron with some luster and a mottled black color. Pretty amazing size and sharpness make this an important example of the species. Purchased from his old collecting friend Ed Swoboda, in 1998.
