Description

Zunyite is generally a very rare mineral and Hormuz produced spectacular quality. The red color is caused by hematite and you also can see micro crystals of hematite intergrown to the crystal. The crystal is sharp and lustrous and shows a great contrast to more uncommon light matrix. Usually the locality produced single-crystals, pieces on matrix came rare. Well balanced, very aesthetic!
