Be you a systematic, South Africa or even specialist N'Chwaning collector, this outstanding Hematite would surely grace any high-end collection. In danger of this sounding a cliché, of all the fine Hematites I’ve handled from the N'Chwaning mines, this is really quite unique and stunning to say the least. Honest! It’s a decent sized miniature which would best be displayed in a vertical orientation, so standing 5.6 cm tall. Overlaying a back of solid, massive silver-black Hematite are bundles of aligned, tall and elegant Hematite crystals, forming spire-like prisms with a stunning metallic lustre. These crystals are scalenohedral in appearance, with a very long and gradually tapering cross sections, terminating with very sharp tips. The most prominent of these crystals measures at least 2.7 cm tall, then disappears nearer its base behind adjacent smaller yet similar crystals. It’s a thing of beauty, accompanied by its previous owner’s label.
