This large display specimen consists almost entirely of massive Hematite, but contains a few obviously crystalline formations, including a few thin blades in a hollow that I cannot identify- their form certainly is not conducive to Hematite. The material generally has a brown, black or gray color and a dull luster, though a few small spots are submetallic. However, the piece has a heavy Turgite coating over a large portion of its surface, giving it a beautiful iridescent color. Several small patches of weathered white calcite rest on the Hematite.
