Here is something different from Ouro Preto which is famous for its Hematite Iron Roses. On this specimen, small bundles of light green Muscovite have grown scattered all across the Hematite roses. Both the Hematite and Muscovite crystals are well formed. The Hematite has a high luster and small areas of bright iridescence. There are small areas of a rust like encrustation which likely could be removed but this could lead to the loss of the iridescence.
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
