Hematite from
Conrad Hill Mine (Dodge Hill Mine), Cid Mining District, Carolina Slate Belt, Davidson Co., North Carolina, USA

Locality type:Mine
Classification
Species:Hematite
Formula:Fe2O3
Formation:Primary, Secondary
Comments:Hematite takes two modes at Conrad Hill: red ochre and black coarse platy. The platy is best described as "platy hematite" and does not resemble the variety "specularite". Tiny crystals are very rare and unimpressive, but they have been found. I (Steve Adams) found a few pieces with such crystals over many years of collecting there.
Abundance at site:Common
Confirmation
Validity:Believed Valid
