Fascinating Hematite Botryoidal Habit Large 5" 634g

This is an intriguing, 100% all natural, large Hematite specimen with a vast number of botryoidal structures appearing to grow on top of other botryoidal formations for an overall very unusual and fascinating presentation.  5.05" x 2.58" x 2.04" or 123.4mm x 54.6mm x 52mm We believe the massive number of botryoidal growths on this very cool Hematite specimen validates this example as a special one for the collector.  A definitely eye-catching, mammillary structure exhibits from this quality Hematite specimen.  The substantially deep landscape of globular botryoidal formations on this Hematite is even more apparent in person. Hints of reddish Hematite or oxidized iron appear in some areas and peek out from between the botryoidal habit, see mineralogical explanation below for more information. The overall presentation and structure of this larger size, over 5 inches, botryoidal Hematite collector piece, makes it a top shelf specimen. 634 grams.  Free domestic shipping.

Weight is 634 grams.  Measures 5.05" x 2.58" x 2.04" or 123.4mm x 54.6mm x 52mm 

*****Mineralogically, Hematite is an iron ore, more definitively an iron oxide, chemically noted as Fe2O3 and presents with steel-gray crystals and/or coarse-grained varieties that have a metallic luster, sometimes naturally, brilliantly bright luster amongst the gray-black areas of the specimen.  Often when you see the color red in a rock, it is because of the presence of Hematite, or the oxidized iron variety of Hematite, in that stone.
