Only a very few specimens in this pocket seem to have caught the nearby hematite crystals and come out in association. This piece is dramatic. It features a doubly-terminated 4.4-cm crystal, inset with a small cluster of glistening jet black hausmannite, on the hematite-covered plate. On the other side, it is covered by soft white oyelite, so either side offers great contrast for the display of the specimen. The hematites, to 1.7 cm, are mirror-bright, so shiny and reflective you can shave in them. This is a unique piece from a unique pocket, with singular aesthetics.
