ID: CC16504
A classic group of West Cumbrian scalenohedral Calcite crystals on a mixed Hematite and Limonite matrix from the mining area around the town of Egremont in north-west England.  About six main crystals comprise the specimen, all of which are essentially colourless and water-clear, the largest measuring 5 cm long and tinted a delicate reddish-pink at one end of this double terminated crystal.  Please note that the end of this particular crystal is partly cleaved, so not all termination faces are present; however, the opposite end and all other crystals are complete.  A terrific miniature example of classically crystallised Calcite from the West Cumberland Iron Field.
