In 1994 a pocket was found at the ZCA #4 Mine that produced sharp cubic crystals of magnetite. This was a first, since this mineral had only previously been found in octahedral crystals. This piece comes from that find, and it is a superb miniature size specimen featuring sharply crystallized cubic crystals in a shiny metallic black finish with brilliant luster, with several small areas of talc.
