3.9 x 2.0 x 1.8 cm. An aesthetic magnetite miniature from the Jaime Bird Collection and near the Dallas Gem Mine. A 1.2 x 1.2 cm, lustrous, textbook sharp magnetite octahedron is set on a sliver of serpentine matrix, which is richly sprinkled with sparkly green andradite microcrystals. The magnetite is complete-all-around and is pristine. According to Jaime Bird’s label, this piece was a gift from well-known dealer Mike New.
