This is an intergrown cluster of octahedral magnetite crystals with fluorapatite. The magnetite crystals reach 1.1" (2.8cm) on edge. There are two fluorapatite crystals growing up through the magnetite. One of these is terminated; the other one has been broken off. One of the larger magnetite crystals has a moderately damaged face. The remainder of the specimen only shows damage on the edges. This piece is firmly glued to a clear acrylic base.
