ID: CC13169
Pumpkin-orange spherical crystals of Campylite, a variety of Mimetite, are scattered over the surface of a Quartz veinstone plate coated in a layer of sooty black manganese oxides.  The specimens from this pocket within Dry Gill mine in the Caldbeck Fells, Cumbria, were mainly collected by Richard Barstow and Ralph Sutcliffe in the 1970s.  Shortly after specimen recovery this part of Dry Gill mine collapsed.  The Campylite crystals range from 2 to 9 mm in diameter and look striking against the black matrix.
