Description: HEMATITE ORE
Montreal, Wisconsin, USA
Possibly from the famous Iron County Mine in Wisconsin, this unusual form of Hematite is sometimes referred to as "needle ore" or "kidney ore". The present specimen of hematite has abandoned its normal botryoidal growth habit, creating the clearly faceted surfaces visible here, shimmering with a metallic gray-black color and enlivened by shades of ferric red at one end, 6 1/4 x 4 7/8 x 2 1/4 inches.
