A jet black, lustrous black Ilvaite intergrowth with an olive-green Hedenbergite Quartz point.  The Ilvaite crystal showing a well developed vertical prism and rhombic prismatic terminal faces.  A scattering of tiny little glittering Calcite crystals are seen on the back of the Ilvaite, the aesthetics are impressive!  Another of the mineral wonders from the incredible deposits at Huanggang.
