This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC8891
A super example of equant, well developed and glassy, double-terminated Quartz crystals containing included disseminated Hematite of the “Specular” variety, from the Frizington mining area of west Cumbria.  The high-lustre, stubby Quartz crystals are all around 1.5 cm along their termination edges and sit on a thin plate of greyish-white Quartz covering remnant shell-like layers of brick-red Hematite. The Quartz crystals sit in a bed of micro “Specular” black Hematite and are all heavily included with “Specular” Hematite to a density making them appear almost jet black.
