This extraordinary piece is from my personal Hematite collection, and is perhaps the finest Cabinet size, Museum Quality specimen of Rainbow Hematite to appear on in a long time. It displays over its complete glittering surface the most amazing iridescent composition ofhues and tonesof almost every color; reds, blues, yellows, greens, orange, purple, pink, and gold. The vast majority of specimens this size are weak in both color intensity and variety. This gem grade specimen is truly exceptional with its dazzling wealth of natural color. Colors have not been enhanced in any way.
The pictures were taken from many angles and in various lighting conditions; direct sunlight, cloudy daylight, evening sun, and indoor flash to display the widest range of color and iridescence as possible.
This foliated/crust form of specular hematite is about 3/4" thick and multi-layered, and looks like it could be carefully split to produce another 4 inch piece if desired. But I am leaving that decision to the lucky buyer.
