This babingtonite specimen comes from a quarry in Peabody, MA that has long been closed. The jet black crystals are sharp cubes, with bright luster and a delightful twinkle. They sit up nicely on a dark gray matrix. This specimen comes out of my own collection, and I acquired it in a trade in the late 1980s. Babingtonite is the Massachusetts state mineral; specimens from this locality are rarely available these days. No damage.
