Item Description

An extremely fine, lustrous, burnished brown to black, knobby, stellate hematite after marcasite floater specimen from the White Desert of Egypt. I am told it is a dangerous area nea rthe border of Libya. This excellent pseudomorph specimen is pristine. A facinating crystal form! These came out a number of years ago, with none since. Ex Robert Whitmore Collection.
