A showy specimen of bright metallic lustrous platy hematite in quartz matrix from the Thickety Creek Quartz Mine in Montgomery County, North Carolina.  This obscure locality has been known to produce some small hematite roses, but the veins rarely have enough void space for crystals to fully form.  This piece, like most, has the crystals growing directly into the quartz matrix, but you can detect the hexagonal form nonetheless.  Measures 2.25 x 1.5 x 1.5 inches ( 5.7 x 3.8 x 3.8 cm).
