Mineral Specimen #5313    Dolomite and Hematite on Barite

Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field, Cumbria, England

Large, bladed crystals of Barite covered with Dolomite. Several of the Barite crystals also have on the surfaces, small, bladed Hematite crystals. These crystals are black in color with a high metallic luster. There are more Hematite crystals of a different habit, being very small, reddish brown to maroon in color. Some of these micro crystals have a sparkly luster. The color of the underlying Dolomite is a light yellow/tan and the Barite an off white. When backlit, the Barite crystals at the top of the specimen are translucent.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: There is missing Barite crystal in the front of the specimen which is not noticable (see the front of the specimen, a few cm above the bottom of the specimen, of the first two pictures).
