Mineral Specimen #2695 Siderite
Champion Mine, Champion, Marquette Co., Michigan
6.8 x 4.6 x 2.8 cm
Ex. A. E. Seaman Museum, Ex. Lance Hampel
This specimen has two occurences of deep red brown colored cleavages of Siderite. The surfaces of the Siderite have a high luster. Despite the extent of the iron deposits in Michigan, Siderite is quite rare. Please note: the Lance Hampel collection was recently donated to the Seaman museum. However, there is no label from the museum, but there is one from the Hampel collection.
