Iowaite With Chondrodite and Magnetite

ID: CC896
An excellent example of the rare mineral Iowaite from Palabora - the Iowaite from here is considered the finest in the world. The dark olive green plate-like prismatic crystals of Iowaite richly invest a matrix made up of transparent to translucent prismatic crystals of Calcite, with red/orange Chondrodite and grey/metallic Magnetite. The Iowaite crystals get up to 1cm in width and have mirror bright prism faces. Clean and in great shape - rare stuff!
