Bulk Purchase Specimen
You are buying one rock. You will receive one rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rocks shown. Photographing and listing every crystal separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.

Hornblende is actually the name given to a series of minerals that are rather difficult to distinguish by ordinary means. The iron, magnesium and aluminum ions can freely substitute for each other and form what have been distinguished as separate minerals. The word hornblende is derived from the German horn and blenden, to 'deceive' in allusion to its similarity in appearance to metal bearing ore minerals. Horneblende is a common dimension stone used in construction, paving and facing of buildings.
