Description

A nice specimen with reniform psilomelane/haematite/limonite. I consider this specimen as a bit controversial: there is a greyish black reniform aggregate over more reddish-brownish kidney ore. I did not check chemically.

Locale is given as Cumberland only, so any comments/suggestions welcome.

Nevertheless an interesting historic UK specimen and also quite showy.
