ID: CC17759
A beautiful showy specimen of golden-deep tan Dolomite coating two L-shaped faces of a creamy-white Dolomite matrix from the little known Agnes mine (or Agnes Pit) from which iron ore was extracted.  Micro-crystals of Dolomite, Hematite and Quartz are sprinkled over the Dolomite crystals together with some 1 to 2 mm snow-white Dolomite crystals.  The very high lustre of the Dolomite and Quartz is stunning and gives the whole specimen an iridescent sheen.  Very aesthetic. The specimen comes with a highly detailed label.
