Light to deep olive-green acicular crystals of Olivenite richly invest an elongated triangular area on the display face of this cabinet specimen from Wheal Phoenix at Minions near to Linkinhorne in Cornwall.  Needle-like Olivenite crystals attain a length of 4 mm on deep brown Goethite.  The matrix is composed of grey hornfels with white to copper-stained green Kaolinite, some displaying a porcelaneous lustre.  Several cavities associated with the Goethite also have crystals of Olivenite.  A fine Olivenite displaying several crystal habits found at Wheal Phoenix.  The specimen is accompanied with a W.J.B. Eliasson Collection label, a fairly large label I hasten to add!
