ID: CC14148
A striking cabinet specimen of superbly structured Pencil Ore, a variety of Hematite, from the Furness Region of west Cumbria, England. The heavy block displays 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. This is a good example of Pencil Ore Hematite from West Cumbria, England.
