Hemetite, ps. Magnetite

Item number: 20106

A wonderful plate of crystals that are, in fact, pseudomorphs of hematite after magnetite. The crystals are sharp and show the simple octahedral crystal form. As well, there is a younger generation of smaller crystals scattered about the large crystals. In addition, there are dark green, thick tabular crystals of a pyroxene group mineral, probably epidote, 7mm or so in size, scattered about. There is probably some relict magnetite in the specimen somewhere since it is slightly magnetic but nowhere near as magnetic as if it was fully magnetite. An old timer! Displays very well.
