This is a gorgeous piece of specularite, with a steel-grey body colour and sparkling silver shards across the stone. It is drilled, so can obviously be used as a bead, but I can see it working just as well as a slice, in a window setting, or even a bezel, although the surface is somewhat curved. Please note that the stone is an organic, freeform piece and is cut with a deliberately uneven thickness. Please also note that haematite has a high specific gravity (density) therefore this is quite a heavy stone. This stone has a lovely, silky matte polish, which provides a perfect foil for the silvery streaks.
