ID: CC2450

A lovely classic North of England Quartz and Hematite. The specimen forms a large plate covered by double terminated Quartz crystals to 2.7cm, which display a glassy vitreous luster. Specular Hematite forms small clusters of sparkling black metallic platy crystals included in, and scattered between the larger Quartz crystals. The smaller Quartz crystals are often water clear. The Quartz and Hematite sit on a fibrous band of red-brown Hematite. On the reverse of the specimen lustrous orange Eisenkiesel and specular Hematite is present, in areas to 4.6cm by 4cm. Quartz specimens of this caliber are now rare from the West Cumbrian Ore-field, and this is an exceptional specimen.
