A highly unusual, strangely shaped, combination cabinet specimen from the famous iron mines of Egremont, England. Pink, crested baryte blades are sheathed in a dramatic box-work of specular hematite, which in turn, is coated with a quartz druse, giving the hematite the sparkly look.
Haile Moor Mine, Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field, North and Western Region (Cumberland), Cumbria, England, UK
This is perhaps the rarest color here…Exquisitely colored a rich citrine, burnt yellow color, this matrix specimen of prismatic, nearly equant, quartz crystals is very impactful. They are glassy, and translucent, with the largest crystal reaching 3.5 cm in length.
