Andrewsite and Henwoodite

ID: CC2730

A classic miniature specimen of Andrewsite and Henwoodite from the world famous Wheal Phoenix, Cornwall. The Andrewsite forms very light green scattered and aggregated hemispheres to almost 2mm, in a shallow cavity. The Henwoodite is seen as a deeper green drusy covering towards one side of the cavity, partly covering the earlier generation of Andrewsite. Both minerals have grown on a deep brown Goethite coated Granitic-Quartz matrix. Henwoodite (named after William J. Henwood (1805-1875)) is now a variety of Turquoise. Andrewsite (named after Thomas Andrews (1813-1885)) is a mixture of Hentschelite and Rockbridgeite. A fine miniature example of two classic Wheal Phoenix varieties.
