This X-shaped spray of Aragonite crystals is an excellent example from Greystone quarry, at Lezant, in north Cornwall.  This is a working roadstone quarry but intersects old mine workings at its eastern end and hence encounters the strike of a mineralised lode system.  The Aragonite forms good crystals to 6.5 cm long and of translucent light grey, some of which are preferentially coated with botryoidal light grey opaque Aragonite.  A very good off-matrix specimen from Greystone quarry.
