Magnetite
Balmat, NY

Magnetite crystals are common throughout the world. But CUBIC crystals of magnetite are only known from this one occurrence in New York. The largest crystal on this specimen measures about 0.8 cm. It is a very simple cube...this is actually ununusually because most of the larger crystals from this location are tetrahexahedrons.
The white matrix is either anhydrite or halite. 5.6 x 4 x 4 cm.
