ID: CC12834
A rare specimen indeed of turquoise blue Connellite pseudomorphing after Botallackite from the beach outcrop at Cligga Head in the St. Agnes District of Cornwall.  Connellite is a rare copper sulphate containing chlorine and in this large thumbnail replaces Botallackite, a copper oxychloride, formed where copper bearing veins extend out across the beach from Cligga mine, then disappear beneath the sea.  This is a lovely example of an exceedingly rare pseudomorph.
