Quartz on Hematite from Cleator Moor, Cumberland, England [db_pics/pics/t869a.jpg] Quartz on Hematite from Cleator Moor, Cumberland, England [db_pics/pics/t869b.jpg] Quartz on Hematite from Cleator Moor, Cumberland, England [db_pics/pics/t869c.jpg]

Fine example of double terminated 'Beta Quartz' on Hematite crystals. A UK classic that is undamaged except for a couple places along the edges where it broke away from the host rock. The Quartz crystals are glassy and lustrous and, along with the bright metallic Hematite, give off lots of sparkle. A fine example out of an old collection.
