Quartz On Hematite by Undistilled Quartz On Hematite by Undistilled
(please click image for full view and scroll right)

Title: Quartz On Hematite
Medium: Digital Photography
Photographer: Aaron J. Greenblatt
Camera Type: Panasonic DMC-LZ7 Lumix 7.2 MP
Editing: Edited in PhotoShop 7.0 for color accuracy, size, and to apply copyright and border.

Location: Photograph taken at the 2007 63rd Annual Greater Detroit Gem, Mineral, Fossil & Jewelry Show in Warren, Michigan.

Description: This very cool specimen was in a display case at the show. Hematite is the mineral form of iron and it's that iron which has stained these quartz crystals a vibrant red color. If there are crystals growing in Hell then this is probably what they look like - deep red on black.

This is just the most amazing hematite piece I ever seen. I collect rocks and fossils from all over, but I never seen anything like this.
