A aesthetic cluster of larger, lustrous, dark gray, hematite "iron roses" from the very famous Cavradi Gorge of Switzerland. Crystals reach 5.0 cm on this striking, two-sided piece. The overall quality of this very fine piece is (minimally) impacted by modest contacting and edgewear, which needs to be noted. Nevertheless, such robust crystals, in such a big and unrepaired cluster, are a major alpine rarity and this piece is a cabinet display specimen of some note. It is Classic material with large crystals, from this historic locale. Valued at $1000-1500.
