Carharrack is a civil parish south of the village of St. Day and east of Redruth and contained some of the richest and most famous mines in Cornwall.  Adjacent to the parish of Gwennap, this too is an arsenic-rich area and produced a similar suite of the arsenate minerals collectors adore so much.  This is an interesting small cabinet specimen of Quartz veinstone, rich in large blocky patches of the copper arsenate, Clinoclase.  Although not the prettiest of Clinoclase, it is quite unique in terms of the area and thickness of the various patches, the largest measuring approximately 2.5 x 1 cm, but with many other extensive areas.  Its colour is the characteristic greenish indigo blue, and in some areas small beetle or acorn shaped crystals have developed, a most desirable habit of Clinoclase.  A few small coatings of light apple green Olivenite are also present.  This specimen is accompanied by a Dr F. Krantz of Bonn stock label.
