Loose Columbite Crystals without significant terminations have been polished.  They may be used in Jewelry or just placed 'as is' in your collection. They have a moderate SG (4.5) so feel smooth, heavy and thrillingly cold.  Some original pyramid and prism crystal faces are preserved.  They have a similar luster to hematite but mostly are a deep iridescent graphitic color, very interesting  pieces if you want any US$40c/gram.  Someone told me Columbite makes you irresistible in love and invincible in war. (these are popular so get your order in before the current stock is depleted)
