Description

The schist from the area host sizeable octahedral magnetite crystals which crop out of the matrix. The specimen is exactly that, featuring a couple of dark metallic octahedrons with very good lustre. The main one is 7 mm across, a good size for the area.

Quite representative from the area and paragenesis. Both oldtimer and classic, this comes from the former collection Labanti (I) and it dates back to a few decades ago.
