Collector's Piece: Hedenbergite Quartz with Ilvaite from Huanggang Mine
Dimension: 9.3cm x 6.5cm x 6.2cm
Locality:Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia, China
A magnificent cluster of Quartz Points with Hedenbergite Inclusions and a jet black lustrous core of Ilvaite from Huanggang Mine, Inner Mongolia. Dramatic spray of stout, pastel to light olive-green Quartz crystals richly included by Hedenbergite completely coated the inner core with Ilvaite intergrowth. This specimen is incredibly scuptural and 3-dimentional, one of the best pieces I've seen from this famous locale. From an old 2016 finds, this piece is nearly perfect and so aesthetic!
