Item Description

A super-fine, sculptural, CABINET, plate festooned with splendent magnetite octahedrons to 1.3 cm from recent finds in Bolivia. Some of the octos are twinned and I particularly like the way the largest magnetite dominates the skyline and the entire specimen. Very aesthetic. There are even many magnetites on the back of the crust, as a bonus. Outstanding material from this locale.
