ID: CC16340
A magnificent group of scalenohedral Calcite crystals with a little attached brick-red Hematite from the Egremont mining district in west Cumbria, England. All of the Calcite crystals are milky-white to colourless and contain many gemmy zones. They have a brilliant glassy lustre and the largest crystal measures to over 8.5 cm long. All terminations are perfect and some prism faces display interesting step-growth patterns. The underlying Hematite matrix contains small botryoidal patches of micro-“kidney ore”. A first class Calcite specimen from the historic West Cumberland Iron Field.
