Ex. Herb Obodda
Lustrous pair of bladed Hematites, shot through with needles of shiny, golden-red Rutile. The largest Hematite is 5.7 cm across, and it is fronted by a second Hematite blade that is 4.2 cm. The lusters are mirror-like, and they are complemented nicely by the radiating sprays of Rutile crystals. A very good Pakistani combination piece and highly unusual for the locality!
