A small miniature, dark bottle green Olivenite with Quartz from Wheal Gorland, one of Cornwall’s most famous mines and in the village of St. Day, a little to the east of Redruth.  Rich drusy mounds of finely crystallised Olivenite cover a matrix of milky white vein Quartz, with several iron-stained prismatic Quartz crystals amongst the Olivenite on the centre of the specimen.  A tiny paper slip accompanies this, labelled and printed “Huel Gorland,” “Huel” being the old name for “Wheal”, the Cornish for “mine”.
