ID: CC18193
Coldstones quarry at Greenhow Hill, close to Pateley Bridge in North Yorkshire, England, is still in operation mining roadstone.  Occasionally, mineralised veins are encountered and over the years have produced many fine specimens.  The turquoise-green radiating sprays of acicular Aurichalcite form three dominant clusters, each of around 7 mm diameter within the vuggy interior of a light brown and orange-buff Calcite nodule. Other patches of crystallised Aurichalcite occur throughout the specimen.  This is a good and rich example for this species from Coldstones.
