This specimen is an excellent example of what is termed ‘Pencil Ore’; a habit of Hematite that can be split into thin rods due to its hard and fibrous crystalline structure. From the West Cumbria iron mining district, this specimen adopts the typical conical habit of ‘Pencil Ore’ and displays its fibrous structure well in the lustrous steel-grey metallic faces.  An excellent specimen and example of this rarely seen form of Hematite.
