This particular specimen features a beautiful cluster of excellent, sharp, aesthetic rhombic crystals of Siderite which have been replaced by Hematite and are sitting atop beautifully contrasting pink Microcline I enjoy the contrast in color and texture between the Hematite and Microcline. I also like, on the side view, you can see where the hematite transitions into aesthetic rhombic crystals from a well formed microcline base.
