PSEUDOMORPH HEMATITE GOETHITE after Marcasite White Desert Egypt - 35 g
Absolutely fantastic "weird" shaped specimen - Black-Brown color. Smooth outside texture
Fascinating specimen of hematite/goethite that has replaced (pseudomorphed) crystallized marcasite retaining its crystal form perfectly. Originally formed as marcasite crystals on the sea bottom, these unusual specimens later were pseudomorphed to hematite and make for amazingly sculptural and attractive examples of crystallography in action. They form all kinds of wild shapes!
The White Desert in Egypt became a Natural Protected Area some years ago. Collecting specimens today is strictly forbidden. The specimen here was collected between 1997 and 2002 !
