ID: CC17352
Golconda mine, west of Wirksworth in Derbyshire, produced both lead and barium in its heyday.  Local collectors did extensive work during the 1990s, recovering many excellent specimens of various species.  This is a fine example of micro-crystallised Hemimorphite from the 50 fathom (fm) Flats Level, forming a sparkling hillocky druse of 1 mm crystals over a matrix of snow white massive Baryte matrix.  This lovely small cabinet specimen was collected in October 1997.
