Quartz var. Eisenkiesel on Hematite

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

ID: CC13059
A delicate, 1 to 2 mm thick plate of Hematite coated with micro-crystals of sparkling jet-black Specularite over which orangey-red Eisenkiesel has developed.  From Florence mine at Egremont in Cumbria, England, this specimen is unusual in that the Eisenkiesel, a variety of Quartz with Hematite inclusions, penetrates through the Hematite plate, so appearing in the same places on opposite sides.  These manifest as flattened circular crystalline plates to over 1 cm diameter, of opaque terracotta-red with a brilliant glassy lustre.  A beautiful oversized miniature of vividly coloured Eisenkiesel from West Cumbria.
