A fine seldom seen specimen of Azurite from the South Caradon Mine, St. Cleer. (There was an old Cornish miners saying that there were no good copper mines east of Truro, this was comprehensively disproved with the opening of South Caradon in 1833). The specimen of Azurite we have displays an outer surface of crystallized botryoidal form, with inner cavity areas lined with a druse of sparkling Azurite crystals. Specimens of this type from South Caradon Mine are believed to have formed in ball-like concretions in a clay-Fe-oxide gossan. A fine specimen from the mine.
