Hematite with K Feldspar var. Adularia

ID: CC17992
Beautiful clusters of pseudohexagonal, jet-black Hematite crystals form a chain descending down a 3.5 cm tall plate, composed of glassy prisms of Adularia, a variety of potassium Feldspar.  This lovely thumbnail is from the Cavradi Gorge in the Curnera Valley, Grischun, Switzerland and comes mounted vertically on a black acrylic base.  The Hematite rosettes, also known as ‘Iron Roses’, are to 9 mm across and are formed from nested and rotated hexagonal plates.  A delightful thumbnail of crystallised Hematite on Adularia from Switzerland.
