HEMATITE

Hematite ....... one of my favourites !! You can find Hematite probably in every quarry in the Eifel region, but the Wannenköpf Hematite's are special (I think). Why ....... because at the Wannenköpfe there are so many different nice forms of Hematite ! Needles, tablets, rhombus forms, barrel forms, triangles, skeletons, hexagonal forms, and many others. Also combinations are possible, for instance: Hematite with Corundum, Hematite with Nepheline, Hematite with Mullite, Hematite with Cristobalite, Hematite with Pseudobrookite, Hematite with Sanidine, Hematite with Tridymite. Impressive, isn't it ??
Underneath I show you some of my Wannenkopf Hematite's, others will follow as soon as possible.
