|Hematite on Quartz
|Upper New Street Quarry, Paterson, Passaic County, New Jersey
|Lustrous black rosettes of iridescent black hematite on colorless quartz crystals with calcite. Under magnification red areas can be seen though hard to tell if these are reflections or translucent. I have never seen a hematite like this from the quarry. Ex. Robert C. Linck (1905-1970)
