ID: CC8671
This fine miniature packs in many characteristics of the West Cumbrian orefield, nicely displaying specular Hematite, Quartz and Calcite. From Florence mine, adjacent to the mining town of Egremont, a solid, massive plate of Hematite averaging 1 cm thick has its top face encrusted with stubby and well terminated Quartz crystals. These are transparent to translucent with a bright glassy lustre and vary from colourless to pale smoky grey. Two fine groups of vertically aligned Specular Hematite plates project upwards, some of which have a preferential coating of tiny nail-head Calcite crystals tinged pale flesh pink.
