Detailed Description

This slender, elegant group is comprised of parallel-growth ilvaite crystals that are a bit subparallel, just to be artistic. The quality, lustre and sharp definition of this specimen are fantastic. This group of singly-terminated ilvaite crystals is in exceptional condition - a tiny edge rub at a top corner, and a nick around the back out of view, otherwise perfect. Stands perfectly for display - a super ilvaite!

About These Ilvaites

Although the finds at Huanggang have clearly produced ilvaite specimens of a calibre and in numbers previously unknown for the mineral, many Huanggang ilvaites are quite chipped or more severely damaged - these ones are excellent. Over the course of the ilvaite finds, some characteristics of the crystals have varied quite substantially. In particular, some are much sharper than others, and some are much brighter than others.
