ID: CC12909
A really terrific large miniature of the botryoidal variety of Hematite known as Kidney Ore from the Egremont mining district of the West Cumberland Iron Field, Cumbria, England.  The botryoidal surfaces form a small rib of Hematite with a lovely reddish-brown patina.  When turned over, the base reveals excellent onion skin layering and a radial, fibrous structure.  A delightful Hematite from one of the mines close to the town of Egremont.
