ID: CC10923
A toad-like naturally polished warty mass of high-grade Hematite from the now abandoned Florence Mine, close to the small town of Egremont in west Cumbria, England.  The specimen is built from three concentrically nested shell-like domed layers of gunmetal-grey Hematite, each around 1 cm thick and of a dense acicular crystallised habit, approaching that of the Hematite variety “Pencil Ore”.  The outer display surface is a gently undulating patchwork of botryoidal domes of a dark metallic grey-black with attractive dispersed patched of brick-red Hematite.  A choice west Cumbrian Hematite with many attractive and unusual characteristics.
