A classic example of Specularite, the metallic bladed variety of Hematite from Florence mine near Egremont in west Cumbria, England.  A thin and irregular shaped plate of botryoidal, earthy matt red Hematite is densely coated with 1 to 2 mm blades of black Specularite with a brilliant metallic lustre.  However, at one end a number of excellent large Specularite flying saucer-like crystals stand vertically on edge, each of around 1 cm diameter.  A fine specimen of this variety of Hematite.
