5.7 x 4.8 x 3.8 cm. A very aesthetic specimen of moderately lustrous, intergrown, metallic Hematite blades forming a very attractive "rosette" strikingly studded with very gemmy, slightly smoky color Quartz crystals from finds at the Lechang Mine. The "rosette" measures 3.8 cm across. The simple and elegant combination of the two species makes for a lovely display specimen. Fine combination material from this locale.
