ID: CC21548
A completely mixed small miniature of blue and green Liroconite, dark inky blue green Clinoclase and veinlets of milky Quartz, a specimen clearly from the near-surface gossan zone of Wheal Gorland in Gwennap Parish east of Redruth, Cornwall.  It is interesting to see the close association of intense blue and deep green Liroconite crystals and granular patches.  Since the discovery of Kernowite, it is tempting to hope all green Liroconite crystals are this new iron-rich end member, yet very few such specimens are.  A rich and interesting Liroconite and Clinoclase from Wheal Gorland.
