It's not a chocolate treat, but it is rather disgusting looking specimen. This is a botyroidal mass of heavy Hematite. It is though rather interesting and you have to wonder how this forms. I suspect a low temperature fluid phase in open fractures produced this piece. Collected by Arnold Hampson in 1968.
