3.4" Lustrous, Iridescent Hematite Crystal Cluster - Italy

This is an absolutely stunning, 3.4 wide cluster of naturally iridescent hematite crystals that formed in association with small quartz crystals.

These hematite crystals have exceptional luster and amazing iridescent properties, giving the specimen an eye-catching flashing effect when rotated.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

Hematite is a fairly common mineral, typically responsible for the red-brown coloration that can be found in other minerals and rocks. The chemical composition of hematite is Fe2O3, occasionally containing small amounts of titanium (variable formula (Fe,Ti)2O3). Much of the time, non-crystalline hematite specimens are the result of a transformation from limonite following loss of water.
