ID: CC20770
A delightful mamillary mound of Kidney Ore, the botryoidal habit of Hematite.  The Hematite forms an excellent hemispherical dome 4 cm in diameter, of dark, slightly reddish chocolate brown with a bright metallic lustre.  Turn it over and its flat base reveals the concentric growth of nested shell-like layers, each with an outward radial fibrous crystalline structure.  A splendid miniature Hematite from Goose Green mine near Frizington in Cumbria.
