Ilvaite crystals from the Huanggang mines in Inner Mongolia is now universally accepted as the world's best, and this crystal shows why that is, with great luster, large size, and sharp faces. Forming a radiating spray of black crystals on quartz and arsenopyrite matrix, this is a fantastic Ilvaite for the locality. The Ilvaite crystals have ideal aesthetics in that they are 'perched' on a bed of upward-projecting crystals, creating a pleasing aesthetic focal point.
