An elegant magnetite from this important locality, with sharp, lustrous, jet black crystals approaching 1.5 cm, though most are a bit smaller. This is a superb example from this hard-to-get locality. These magnetites to me are best of species - I know some will disagree, choosing instead the sharp Swiss octohedra. But, for me, I like the metallic, jet black, intricate cubes of the NY Magnetites better - and the specimens are larger and more pretty, overall, too. This is a major classic but more than that something really different for a common species normally relegated to the drawers and not to display in a showcase. Ex. Ken Hollman Collection
