A superb miniature group of West Cumbrian scalenohedral Calcite crystals with multiple-faced, complex terminations, on a mixed Hematite and Limonite matrix from the mining area around the town of Egremont in north-west England. About six primary crystals comprise the specimen, all of which are essentially colourless and water-clear, the largest a double terminated crystal measuring 5 cm long and tinted a delicate reddish-pink at one end. Please note one 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 and superb. A terrific miniature example of classically crystallised Calcite from the West Cumberland Iron Field, now in the county of Cumbria.
