Siderite

ID: CC359
Tan coloured Siderite crystals with a sparkling lustre are intergrown as a rich crust on milky white Quartz. The Siderite crystals are up to 1cm in width, formed curved 'saddles' in fanned crystal clusters. Nicknamed 'Cornflake Siderite', these specimens were found in the 1980s, and this is a superb example.
