This saunter amongst the copper minerals takes us to the famous Wheal Unity mine in the parish of Gwennap, Cornwall, England with a specimen of Olivenite.  Thickly coating part of a rusty coloured milky Quartz veinstone, a micro-fibrous habit of very pale peppermint-green Olivenite forms powdery-textured druses of up to 2 cm thick.  The top of the Olivenite appears rather worn, either due to its age, removed matrix or conditions when it was extracted.  However, the area around the line of contact between the Olivenite and veinstone displays a nice colour-zoned form of the variety “Wood Olivenite”.
