This is a classic Hematite and Quartz combo specimen from England, from the classic old English Iron District. It is from the Florence Mines of Egremont in Cumbria. This is a beautiful combination piece, displayable at any orientation, and showing off sharp clear Quartzes upon brilliant and very sparkly Hematite crystals to 2mm. Definitely a fine example of the so-called "Beta Quartz" from England: Note that I am told these are not true high-temperature Beta Quartz on a technical level, but they sure look like it at first glance, certainly, and are often termed as such. Superb, dramatic, classic combo! Hard to find in such quality today.
