A bright metallic mirror-like heart shaped Hematite from Mt Ouichane, Morocco. The excellent display shape of the Hematite shows an indented hopper like growth on one side, while the reverse of the specimen has a relief form. One top edge of the Hematite is accented by a micro-crystalline fringe of translucent white Calcite. A sweet, well formed Hematite from Morocco, the Nador area is a classic for this flattened form of Hematite.
