ID: CC13533
Connellite, a real favourite amongst collectors of Cornish minerals, forms a rich small miniature of abundant Connellite crystals lining the cavities of a copper-rich Quartz veinstone matrix. Dark royal blue, acicular Connellite crystals contrast nicely against lighter Chrysocolla which envelops the cavities. Adjacent to these are sinuous stringers of deep maroon, massive Cuprite. This lovely example is from Wheal Gorland in the parish of Gwennap, Cornwall, probably the most famous of all Cornish mines amongst mineral collectors.
