OMR08 Ilvaite with Hedenbergite
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
9.8x 9.0x 9.6 cm
$385

A beautiful example of radiating ilvaite crystals, lightly coated by green hedenbergite.  While the majority of ilvaites recovered from the location have been single crystals, these ball-shaped clusters were among the first to come from the mine, back in 2010-2011.

This one has more symmetry and better form than most.
