Ex. Neil Wintringham from the Kendigs, Ex. G. Balogh


Bladed Hematite of nearly black color with attractive iridescence in places. The iridescence is primarily purple and blue with some yellow/ gold/green in two places. The specimen was donated last fall by George Balogh to the Seaman Museum, along with a couple dozen other specimens. I happen to have had some other business with the museum a few days later and ended up buying most of his specimens. It wasn't until I was recently taking the photos that I removed the old mineral labels from a small zip lock bag that I found one of my own, old handwritten labels below some of the others. The specimen was originally purchased at the 2009 Springfield show from the Kendigs who were dispersing the Wintringham collection. Apparently, two months later, George bought the specimen from us at a local show.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: Some of the crystals are incomplete, including the largest.
