Locality: N/A. This material is laboratory-made

Size: 69 mm x 43 mm x 25 mm (2.7 in. x 1.7 in. x 1 in.)

Weight: 41 g (1.4 oz.)

Highly lustrous and iridescent silicon carbide (also known as carborundum.) This is a laboratory-made specimen. Silicon carbide exists in nature as the mineral moissanite, which is extremely rare. Most silicon carbide is industrially made for use in the semi-conductor industry and other manufacturing uses.

This piece is very aesthetic and makes a nice display specimen.
