Intensely dark green druses of crystallised Olivenite cover a Quartz veinstone very characteristic of the arsenic-rich lodes in and around St. Day.  The Quartz is pervaded with green copper staining, together with rusty limonite and small stubby Quartz crystals.  One small area on top of the specimen contains wood Olivenite as pastel green micro-fibres.  A good example of Olivenite from Wheal Gorland.
