A Rhombohedrum shaped Goethite specimen with many iron starbursts from a classic Colorado location. The specimen is extremely sparkly and show well when under any lighting conditions. The silver goethite which appears black until the light catches the small crystals that shine bright. The silver sprays are so fine in places that they appear as a soft fuzzy coating. There are lines or layers of thick iron that appear throughout the specimen and give it a grid like appearance in places. The goethite sprays fill in the additional space. This specimen also has the potential to be cut and polished to show the amazing detailed sprays that come with Colorado goethite.
