The relatively unknown mine Wheal Helston is situated just a short walk west from the town of Helston in woodland known as “The Moors”. Very little is known about the mine and its only recorded mineral is Pyromorphite. This rich miniature is a porous crystallised mass of lime green Pyromorphite who vugs are entirely lined with bright lime green Pyromorphite crystals up to about 5 mm long. This lovely miniature from a rare Cornish location comes with a Richard Barstow green stock label and a white Rex Cook label.
