ID: CC7459
A splendid large miniature of lustrous, teal blue Scorodite crystals on a characteristic opaque, milky Quartz matrix. This is from the spectacular find made over 10 years ago at Hemerdon mine close to the village of Sparkwell, near Plympton in Devon. Scorodite crystals measuring to 5 mm are richly scattered and aggregated over the Quartz crystals; not wishing to exaggerate, there must be at least 50 crystals packed into this 4 x 3 cm vug. Scorodite is an iron arsenate and it is probably for this that the Hemerdon mine is so famous amongst collectors, despite it producing good specimens of Cassiterite and Ferberite. A beautifully crystallised and fabulously-rich Scorodite from Hemerdon.
