Hematite Iron Rose

Cava Lombardi, Lucendro-Pass, Gotthard region, Ticino, Switzerland


Higly lustrous Hematite iron rose (8 mm) with minor Rutile, on aplitic granite matrix. The flat crystal aggregate shows perfect and mirror-like faces. Pretty and locally typical specimen from Cava Lombardi, the oldest and most famous Iron Rose site in the Alps (cf. LAPIS 2/2020, p. 30-35). Its specimens were often labelled as "Fibbia" or "Gotthard" in the past. Recovered in October 2018 from the side portion of the basal vein, ex Stefan Weiß collection
