A 1 to 2 mm thick (yet strong) plate of Hematite is totally covered on opposite faces with jet-black, highly lustrous metallic Hematite crystals of the variety “Specularite”. This layer is overgrown with attractive translucent colourless to slightly smoky Quartz crystals of between 5 to 8 mm across.  A little occasional bruising to the Hematite rosettes is present but largely negligible.  A great Specular Hematite and Quartz from the now-closed Florence mine, near to Egremont in Cumbria, England.
