SOLD Magnetite - Vintage Swiss
Zermatt, Matt Valey, Zermatt-Sass Fee area
Wallis, Switzerland
2.5 x 2.1 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A neat old Swiss thumbnail of well-formed Magnetite octahedrons. Ex A. Kranz, his original label can be dated being written between 1850 to 1888. In good but not perfect condition, magnification finds some small edge roughness. The luster is better than most we have seen, this seems to be nearly Magnetite and crystallized on several sides. This was also in the Jeff Glover collection (all labels included ) which was dedicated to Swiss Alpine minerals.
