This mid-size miniature is a great example of both crystallised and fibrous Olivenite from Wheal Gorland, probably the most famous of all mines in Cornwall, England.  A ribbon of sub-mm dark bottle green Olivenite crystals stretches 3.3 cm across a vuggy surface lined with stubby colourless to milky-white Quartz crystals with a bright glassy lustre.  In areas on the top and sides of the matrix the Olivenite becomes more fibrous and consequently, a much lighter pale sage-green.  The contrast between the Olivenite and Quartz is most aesthetic.  A classic Cornish species from the Josef Clemente (1899-1987) Collection of southern Germany.
