5.9 x 2.7 x 2.3 cm. A fine goethite specimen from Colorado. Connected, radiating clusters of lustrous, black to earthy-brown goethite blades form this excellent piece. This fine piece has character, as the sprays are perpendicular to each other. Close examination of the goethite blades reveals the extremely high lustre, and brown gemminess to some of the blades. This excellent specimen is from a recent find. The sculptural specimen was expertly collected, with very minimal damage overall. Highly representative of the species and locality.
