ID: CC17410
A fine example of well crystallised turquoise-green Aurichalcite forming rich druses lining and coating a vuggy limonitic Baryte matrix, from the Golconda mine at Hopton in Derbyshire, England.  The creamy-white patches of earthy Baryte and areas of Aurichalcite are surrounded by sheaves and sprays of colourless Hemimorphite, which adopts a chocolate-brown appearance because of Limonite crusts below.  A very good and characteristic specimen from Golconda mine.
