Fine Hematite Botryoidal Habit Shiny Luster 274g

This is a higher quality, 100% natural, Hematite specimen with an intriguing combination of an abundance of tiny and variably larger grouping of botryoidal formation, including a shiny, light reflective, metallic luster on many areas of the piece.  2.47" x 2.27" x 1.62" or 62.7mm x 57.6mm x 41.2mm Interesting, unpolished, natural luster on the piece, curious structure, and fascinating, varying, botryoidal habit.  We love the eye-catching, mammillary presentation of the Hematite in this higher grade specimen.  The beautiful natural shine evident on the botryoidal formation 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, structure, and metallic luster of this select botryoidal Hematite collector specimen is excellent. 274 grams.  Free domestic shipping.

Source: Irhoud Mine, Youssoufia Province, Marrakesh-Safi Region, Morocco.

Weight is 274 grams.  Measures 2.47" x 2.27" x 1.62" or 62.7mm x 57.6mm x 41.2mm 

*****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.
