Mineral Specimen #4868    Magnetite

Nordmark district, Filipstad, Varmland, Sweden

Ex. A. E. Foote, 1895-1916

One surface of this specimen is covered with well formed Magnetite crystals with a higher concentration at one end. The crystals are black in color and a very high, sparkly luster. Many of the crystals are striated and several exhibit a stepped habit. The Magnetite crystals rest on a thin layer of very small, green tinted crystals. Even under 10x, these are hard to distinguish, but appear to be Quartz crystals with included Chlorite. The matrix is very heavy and is composed most likely of massive Magnetite. The specimen is from sometime in the late 1800s to early 1900s and is from an old collection of a now deceased lawyers from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Similar specimens from this location are raarely available with only one small specimen posted on mindat.

Condition: Good

Flaws: The Magnetite crystals are broken at one end of the specimen.
