The piece also contains several smaller terminated bright red hematite rich quartz points. This is a fairly uncommon older specimen in excellent condition. Most examples of this particular find tend to be thumbnail size with the larger pieces being small cabinet and very rare. This is a great example worthy of anyone’s collection.
