Item Description

A splendent, super sharp, 1.8 x 1.7 cm, magnetite octahedron is jauntily perched on calcite matrix with smaller magnetites from the famous and now-closed Laurel Hill Quarry of New Jersey. This is classic, old-time and a large crystal for this locale and is minimally impacted by the modest termination and edge wear. Ex Rice NW Museum Collection.
