ID: CC8891
A super example of equant, well developed and glassy, double-terminated Quartz crystals containing included disseminated Hematite of the Specularite (or Specular) variety, from the Frizington mining area of west Cumbria.  The high-lustre, stubby Quartz crystals all measure around 1.5 cm along the 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 Specularite to a density making them appear almost jet black.
