Quartz Var Eisenkiesel With Dolomite and Hematite

ID: CC3477

A very fine specimen of the variety Eisenkiesel richly occupying a bowl shaped cavity on red-brown Hematite. A specimen from the Florence Iron Mine, Egremont, Cumbria. Crystals of Eisenkiesel are very lustrous with a bright brick red colour. The Hematite bowl is partly framed by snow white Dolomite crystals to the top and one side. The 'reverse' of the specimen has well formed saddle shaped white crystals of Dolomite with gemmy colourless pyramidal crystals of Quartz. A fine specimen of the Eisenkiesel variety.
