ID: CC8356
A gorgeous small cabinet specimen of double terminated “Smoky” Quartz on Hematite, the latter in the habits of both “Kidney” ore-forming the matrix and “Specularite” as metallic black curved interlocking blades to a few mm. Many perfect double-terminated “Smoky” Quartz crystals are embedded throughout the “Specularite”, the transparent and colourless smaller crystals showing the underlying plum-purple colour of the Hematite.  However, the specimen is dominated by two splendid bigger Quartz crystals, the larger measuring 3.5 cm from tip to tip and 3 cm broad at its centre.  An excellent west Cumbrian “Smoky” Quartz with “Specularite” Hematite.
