Botallackite is a copper chloride and up until the late twentieth century, was only known in Cornwall from the mines around Botallack, for which it is named.  This superb specimen is dates from the well documented find at Cligga on the north Cornish coast in the 1990s and comprises of hundreds of well-developed deep sea-green to dark bluish-emerald-green crystals, densely coating the flat surface of a fine-grained granite.  Unlike many specimens, these crystals do not easily flake-off the matrix, making it an ideal and eye-catching cabinet display piece.
