ID: CC17007
A stunning cabinet sized specimen of milky-white rosettes of glassy Calcite perched over Chlorite-coated etched Quartz crystals and unusual bowtie-habit pseudomorphs of Siderite replacing Stilbite. This rare combination of species and habits forms a showy specimen from the Coronation Lode at Level 18 in Geevor mine, Pendeen, St Just, Cornwall.  Geevor was closed in 1991 and has long since completely flooded.
