Aragonite

ID: CC1141

An excellent crystal specimen of Aragonite from the Bulleycleave Quarry, Devon, England, which has been closed for many years. The specimen we have from this location displays well formed sub-parallel divergent groups of long tapering prismatic crystals, measuring to 5.5cm tall. Aragonite crystals are lustrous and translucent to gemmy at the terminations, with inclusions of light brown Fe-oxides. The Aragonite crystals having developed on a light brown druse of Dolomite and Fe-oxides. A now uncommon specimen of Aragonite from the location.
