Though this Hematite scalenohedron may appear to be damaged upon first glance, it is actually in excellent condition. It has excellent form and is double terminated, though one termination is truncated by a small, nearly basal face. It has well-defined edges and generally clean faces, though one shows some form-related pitting. It has the standard dark gray color and dull metallic luster of its kind, and each face shows a very subtle, colorful iridescence. There is no host rock present, of course.
