A most pleasing group of nail-head Calcite crystals from Florence mine by Egremont in Cumbria, England.  The distinctive Calcite crystals are bright brick-red throughout their lower half due to Hematite inclusions, whilst the upper prism section remains a transparent, slightly grey, colourless Calcite with triangular Mercedes-style triangular terminations.  The crystals are between 1.5 to 3.5 cm tall and originate from the famous mineralised Banana Slide fault at Florence mine, discovered in 1971.
