ID: CC21570
A small miniature of solid, crystallised Olivenite from Wheal Gorland forming radial hemispheres of fine acicular crystals of the variety Wood Olivenite.  This specimen has an old feel about it, perhaps because of the patina and crusty texture of the outer surface.  About half the display face surface area is composed of acicular Olivenite hemispheres which grade from greenish-tan cores to dark bottle green outer shells.  More massive, pale peppermint green Olivenite surrounds these structural features and adopts an earthy texture and lustre.  A fine miniature Wood Olivenite from this most famous of Cornish mines.
