This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC11479
A busy cabinet specimen of Hematite in both its kidney and specularite habits; light grey and smoky-black Quartz crystals and a pervasive overgrowth of micro-rhombohedral Calcite crystals, coloured light chocolate brown with a hint of red. The Calcite on first appearance looks like Eisenkiesel; it’s the Calcite equivalent! The well-terminated Quartz crystals have a bright, glassy lustre and measure up to 1.6 cm. This is a fine specimen fit for display from Cleator Moor in West Cumbria, England.
