ID: CC13440
A hedgehog-shaped cluster of Hematite included Calcite crystals averaging around 1 cm tall with nail-head terminations. This small cabinet specimen is from the iron mining district around the town of Egremont in West Cumbria and is very characteristic for the area. The crystals are all well terminated and range between translucent and transparent, mainly the latter, with colourless terminations and pigeon blood-red Hematite phantoms and zoned bases. A lovely and typical Calcite from this famous English mining district.
