This hand specimen is one of the few in our stock that contains mostly tabular Schorl crystals. These tabular crystals do not exceed 0.8" (2.0 cm) in diameter or 0.4" (1.0 cm) in thickness. Most of them are obviously damaged, and many are broken and incomplete. Where intact, their form is quite good, showing well-defined edges and clean faces that possess the standard vitreous luster. All have the classic black color and are opaque. The specimen is made up almost entirely of schorl- a few tiny patches of a rusty-white material are present, but they are too small to effectively define.
