ID: CC13220
A splendid small cabinet example of a Goethite-Quartz vein section from the Restormel Royal Iron Mine at Lostwithiel near to St. Austell in Cornwall.  Formerly named Trinity mine, the mine was renamed following a visit by Queen Victoria and Price Albert in September 1846. This specimen clearly demonstrates the symmetrical inward filling of a mineral vein, with crystallised deep chocolate-brown and orange-bronze radial fibrous Goethite either side of a jagged patterned creamy-Quartz core with crystallised Quartz at the centre. An excellent specimen from this very well known Cornish mine.
