SMR10 Hematite on Quartz
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
18.1x 11.6x 6.4 cm
$950

A large cabinet specimen of quartz, hosting several ball-shaped aggregates of blady hematite.  These bear some resemblance to the 90"s and early 2000"s pieces from Jinlong Hill, but the quartz is more transparent and arranged somewhat differently.

I saw a few lone hematite clusters in Tucson, but no good matrix pieces, like this one.

An interesting and different specimen from new finds at Huanggang.
