ID: CC16363
A spectacular and beautiful group of highly lustrous, metallic black Hematite crystals composed of blades in parallel-growth which form a near-spherical cluster measuring 2.6 x 2.3 x 2.3 cm.  From Fibbia Mountain in the Central St. Gotthard Massif in Switzerland, the Hematite is perched on a plate of porous, off-cream etched Quartz richly coated with colourless and transparent Orthoclase crystals of the variety Adularia.  The tops of about six Hematite blades are slightly broken at the very front of the display face and more so at the back of the specimen.  The crystals at the front are the much smaller blades, that form the low face of the spherical cluster, so are much less noticeable than the taller, perfect crystals.  These do not detract from this being a very showy and superb Hematite from Fibbia Mountain.
