Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field, Cumbria, England
This excellent, elongated plate is richly covered with lustrous, colorless, well-crystallized gemmy dogtooth calcite crystals of great quality! The water-clear calcite crystals project at many different angles, providing a dramatic, three-dimensional effect. The random positioning of the calcites, along with their numerous crystal faces, provides a sparkle to the piece. Calcites on hematite, goethite rich matrix from Egremont, England are highly sought after, and very difficult to obtain. A stunning, pristine old classic specimen.
