A hillocky, long and narrow Hematite and milky Quartz matrix, richly coated with micro, sub-mm Hematite crystals of metallic rose-gold to pinkish-carmine-red.  The crystals glisten, giving off pin-point reflections and appear more as a patina than a colour!  An interesting and old-time specimen of Hematite from Schmiedeberg in Saxony, Germany.

Ex. the Mineral Collection of Archduke Stephan Franz Viktor of Hungary (1817 to 1867), with a historic Archduke (Erzherzog) Stephan label incorporating his coat of arms.  This small label measures 8.5 x 4.8 cm; it is complete (untrimmed) and is numbered 400/50.  A small label bearing this same number is glued to the base of the specimen together with a Carl Rumpff label, dated 1889.  The Archduke label is in fair condition; it is quite heavily foxed and has been folded once, leaving a vertical crease towards the right.  Two small type labels accompany the specimen.
