Hematite PS after Marcasite
White Desert, Farafra Oasis
New Valley Governorate,
2.9 x 2.8 x 2.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
A perfect complete radiating pseudomorph with super form. I consider these Pseudomorphs from Egypt some of the best values in minerals today. They are sporadically available on the market and sometimes (as in this piece ) have a highly esthetic form. This shows perfectly well the original crystal structures. A choice example, no damage or contacts.
