Thumbnail, 2.4 x 2.1 x 2.0 cm

Engaging and delicate, this is really quite an excellent cluster of Hematite on Adularia from the Swiss Alps. The Hematite blades, the largest of which is 1.4 cm, are super lustrous and beveled. The smaller blades even have a distinct and quite attractive red coloration. Sharp and balanced!
