Wowsers! What a truly remarkable and astonishing large cabinet specimen of wonderfully crystallised metallic grey Hematite covering a matrix of minutely crystallised Andradite Garnet crystals. The specimen is from Wessels mine at Hotazel in South Africa. Priced most reasonably at $500 this overall 12 x 10 cm plate is covered in highly lustrous, metallic thick blades of gunmetal grey, crystallised Hematite, all of which tend to lie flat and in parallel to the matrix. The cinnamon-orange Andradite Garnet crystals are remarkably small, perhaps just about one tenth of a millimetre (0.1 mm) yet form an almost continuous coverage beneath the Hematite. A delightful specimen from Wessels mine.
