ID: CC13231
Mammillary druses of Malachite form gently curved mounds over the Quartz crystal covered surface of a Quartz veinstone platy matrix.  From Wheal Phoenix at Minions in the Liskeard District of north Cornwall, the Malachite also forms mm-scale framboidal plumes of a turquoise-green.  Between the Malachite and Quartz is a layer of deep green Chrysocolla and some zones within the Malachite appear to have silicified to become Chrysocolla.  An interesting specimen from Wheal Phoenix.
