The variety of Hematite termed Pencil Ore from the Furness Region of Cumbria, England has a fibrous crystalline structure which can be clearly seen in the sides of this solid metallic specimen.  Vertical crystallised ‘fingers’ of gunmetal-grey Hematite terminate to form a multi-faceted, polished metallic surface, producing a geometrical pattern similar to a distorted geodesic dome.  A great example of Pencil Ore Hematite from West Cumbria, England.
