A rare style of crystallization for hematite, these came out sometime before 2010, I believe, and are unique to this day. Elongated, columnar crystals of hematite make for a thumbnail that looks like modern sculpture, and is very distinct for the species. Tiny little sparkles of andradite garnet are also present.
