A very fine and rich specimen of Liroconite from Wheal Gorland, St. Day, Cornwall. Excellent blue to slightly blue-green classic wedge-shaped Liroconite crystals, with a large central crystal measuring to 6 mm while most are in the 1-2 mm range extensively covering a good deal of the display face of the rusty-cream Quartz gossan matrix. Crystals of Liroconite are also to be seen in several other areas of the specimen with patches of white Halloysite. Olive green micro-crystals of Olivenite are concentrated on one side of the specimen. A great Liroconite from this old Cornish copper mine.
