Thanks Dany. I thought that it was quite unlike most of the other siderites I have seen from that locality.

Thanks Tobi. I agree, I have never seen a siderite quite like this one. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it for my Romanian collection :>)

A really fine specimen and I especially like the matrix views. Too often in this hobby too many people focus on looks, and I will not disagree that looks are important, and here I am also referring to physical beauty – a fine looking man or a fine looking woman, but this hobby must be based on a firm foundation of science. Matrix views reveal much about the provenance of a specimen and the way it formed within the earth. So keep up the good work, I and probably many others appreciate it.
