Both the Magnesite and Dolomite crystals have in places a coating of micro, reddish colored Hematite crystals. Some of the Dolomite crystals also have Hematite inclusions. These inclusions are often zoned as is the Hematite crystals on the surface of the Dolomite crystals. Of particular note, is the one unusual, thin, elongated Dolomite crystal which is heavily coated with reddish Hematite crystals and is completely different the rest of the Dolomite crystals. Both the Dolomite and the Magnesite have a high luster.

Condition: Good
