Hematite pseudo after Magnetite (Ref: AX-10-932)

Payun Volcano, Altiplano de Payun Matru, Mendoza, Argentina
47mm x 37mm x 32mm
minID: 68D-T9M
$150
The Payún Volcano is a very unusual locality and the Hematites from this area are unusual too. This piece is a stack of octahedral crystals that had been Magnetites but are pseudomorphed to Hematite and are now coated with small sparkling Hematite crystals (Specularite type). On some of the octahedral faces it is easy to see the red Hematite crystal surface below the black sparkling crystals. The sculptural form of this miniature piece is quite elegant and there is no damage. This find of Hematites seems to be finished, they will rank as exceptional and are destined to be considered as classics.
