Dolomite, Hematite
Cabinet, 10.1 x 6.6 x 1.9 cm
Beckermet Mine, Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field, North and Western Region (Cumberland), Cumbria, England, UK

Lustrous rosettes of tan, saddle-shaped dolomite crystals are beautifully scattered on the sparkling specular hematite matrix on this excellent cabinet combination specimen from the well-known Beckermet Mine of Cumbria. Reverse the very thin crust and you see scalloped, brick-red hematite. A very uncommon and classic combination specimen from this noted locale. Ex. Wes Parker Collection.
