Dolomite (twinned)
Hormuz Island, Iran
Miniature, 3.5 x 2.9 x 0.8 cm
These tabular Dolomites are classic but very rarely seen on the market for this famous Hematite locale on Hormuz Island, and the penetration-twin habit is quite appealing. The two Dolomites have good luster, are translucent, and gray-brown in color. There are contacts from other crystals that add visual interest, and there is some other contacting, as well. However, the specimen is overall quite sharp and attractive.
