Description

I had access to really fine material from this most relevant discovery - but this was a very unique piece. I saw crystals in red to brown, in beige and nearöly black - but this one is bi-colored! At the base you can see a light red area, but at the lower thrid it seems like cut. In fact there is a thin stripe of hematite crystals, then the crystal continues in steel grey color. All faces are lustrous, the crystal is sharp and complete all around and developed as floater.
