ID: CC21871
The Eisen Hill Mines in the parish of Winford, North Somerset, are within the bounds of Exmoor National Park and together exploited a localised iron deposit. Specimens from here are virtually unheard of and this is the first I have seen for sale. Composed entirely of long and slender Goethite stalactites to an overall length of 7 cm, this large miniature is delicate in appearance yet strong and ridged. The botryoidal surfaces of the anastomosing (interwoven) stalactites are jet-black with a glossy bright lustre. This rare and most aesthetic specimen was collected in 1982.
