ID: CC7122
A most attractive specimen of lustrous pumpkin to burnt-orange and lime-yellow barrel habit crystals of Campylite, a variety of Mimetite, on a rib of naturally etched vein Quartz from the classic Dry Gill mine in the Caldbeck Fells, Cumbria, England.  Collecting in the Caldbeck Fells has been strictly forbidden for many years, so good specimens are gradually becoming rarer as the years progress.  The crystal habit and colour contrast make this an exceedingly handsome miniature.
