This is an exceptionally large, superbly crystallized specimen of ILVAITE from Bayon Obo, Baotou League, Inner Mongolia, China. This single ilvaite crystal is a well formed crystal with a near-perfect chisel-shaped termination and a rich jet black color - remarkable for both size and perfection! The crystal is completely clean and damage-free, has very sharply defined faces and edges, and is colored a shiny metallic black, with nice, bright luster. The crystals from this 2010 find rival the best specimens from the old-world, classic location on the Isle of Seriphos, Greece. Although I saw several Chinese dealers in Tucson who were offering material from this new find, I selected this and several other really fine examples from the one dealer who had both the highest quality crystals and the most reasonable price. This is one of the best from that lot.
