A single Magnetite octahedron makes up this thumbnail specimen. It is in very good condition, showing no fresh damage, and has good octahedral form, though a few corners are rounded. Its black color is standard for its species, and it has an unusual, silky sheen on its surfaces. A few tiny bits of a rust-stained crust rest on it, but there is no host rock present. It is affixed inside a plastic specimen box with an adhesive putty.
