A good representative specimen of the rare lead oxychloride Mendipite from Torr Works quarry at Cranmore, Mendip, in the county of Somerset. This quarry is more commonly known to collectors as Merehead quarry. The Mendipite forms as clustered, acicular pink-tinged white blades with a glassy lustre in a black manganese oxide and Calcite matrix. The Mn oxide matrix shows interesting spherical nodules throughout the generally massive material.
