ID: CC7060
A fabulous specimen of Campylite, the barrel-shaped variety of Mimetite, from the archetypal location at Dry Gill mine in the Caldbeck Fells of Cumbria.  Apricot tinted light orange barrel habit Campylite crystals measuring to 7 mm fill a 13 x 5 cm cavity in a Quartz-Baryte matrix.  A smaller cavity on one side is also lined with more pumpkin-orange crystals of Campylite.  A great large cabinet specimen of Campylite, perhaps the most iconic of the Caldbeck Fells’ minerals.
