3.6" Quartz Crystal and Bladed Hematite Association - China
This is an attractive association of quartz crystals and bladed hematite rosettes, collected from the Lechang Mine in Guangdong, China.
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.
