The crystal measures 1.5cm with tiny stepped triangular growth features. Orangey-red Andradite Garnet accompanies in varying sizes to 2mm, forming the matrix on top of a silvery Manganese oxide core. It has a partial coating of a whiteish mineral. An excellent display of Hausmannite from the location known for producing the best specimens.
