ID: CC16974
The Millclose mine, close to Matlock in Derbyshire, was a major lead producer and is known for its excellent variety of minerals.  This choice group of translucent colourless to milky scalenohedral Calcite crystals is composed of variously sized crystals up to 7 cm long.  The Calcite crystals sit at about 40 degrees to the vertical on a flat cleaved base and have a preferential coating over certain faces of tangerine-buff Hemimorphite micro-crystals.  A superb Calcite group with Hemimorphite from Millclose, one of Derbyshire’s most famous mines.
