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