Hematite- twinned pyramidal crystals
Hadley Bay, Vicroria Island, Inuvik Region
9.7 x 5.8 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
A fine specimen of this unusual habit from Northern Canada found over 15 years ago. These have sometimes been labelled as Hematite Pseudomorph after Calcite (they are not) since the Hematite is somewhat shaped like a Calcite scalenohedron. The crystals reach to 2CM and some show complex growth and twinning. Very bright luster and better in person, the best example I have seen.
