Silverband Mine, Dun Fell, Milburn, Escarpment District, North Pennines, South Eastern Region (Westmorland), Cumbria, England, UK
Miniature, 4.0 x 1.3 x 1.2 cm
A GORGEOUS, GEM-LIKE, golden-amber baryte crystal with a SUPERB, complex, flattened, chisel termination. This is CLASSIC, OLD-TIME English material from the less well-known Silverband Mine, Westmorland, Cumbria. The termination of this water-clear jewel looks just like a fine topaz crystal from Virgem da Lapa. Very nearly pristine, with only a super-trivial termination bruise and one tiny spot of side edge wear. Ex. George Elling Collection.
