Hematite PS Magnetite

Specimen # 200597
Mineral: Hematite PS Magnetite
Location: Payún Volcano, Altiplano de Payún Matru, Mendoza, Argentina
Size: 3.4 x 2.5 x 1.8 cm


This hematite pseudomorph after magnetite is very sharp, with few of the elongated or skeletal crystal forms one often sees from this locality – these are primarily crisp octahedra. It is dark steel-grey with red hematite on some surfaces and good metallic lustre under the lights. In excellent condition. From the Steve Szilard collection.
