Detailed Description

This is a very aesthetic piece – it is a plate of crystals featuring edge-on hematite clusters dusted with reddish microcrystals of quartz. The hematite crystals are sharp and lustrous. In excellent condition, one rubbed spot is visible if you search for it with a loupe, and a few incomplete crystals at the outer periphery where this was attached. A particularly handsome specimen.
