ID: CC18706
A bright metallic steely blue grey crystal of Hematite measuring to 3.7 cm, displaying a pyramidal form truncated by a flat pinacoid some 2 cm in diameter.  The crystal displays multiple faces, some having a bright reflective metallic lustre and those covered with intricate and fascinating growth patterns, a silky lustre.  The growth patterns are amazing and the nearest thing I can liken them to is the Widmanst├Ątten patterns in some meteorites.  This terrific miniature is from the Wessels mine, close to the town of Hotazel in Northern Cape Province, South Africa.
