ID: CC7507
A well-developed, cogwheel twinned crystal of metallic grey Bournonite measures to 2.6 cm on a matrix of intergrown, pyramidal, white lustrous Quartz from Herodsfoot mine, at Lanreath in Cornwall. This excellent miniature captures the true essence of a Herodsfoot Bournonite, displaying a large Bournonite crystal with a great cog-wheel profile and surrounded by drusy light grey-milky Quartz crystals. There are a significant number of iconic species from Cornwall and Bournonite is certainly one. For anyone interested in Herodsfoot mine and its wonder minerals I highly recommend The Mineralogical Record’s special issue on Herodsfoot written by well-known British author Roy Starkey. Every collection of Cornish minerals must have a Herodsfoot Bournonite, so this could be the one for you!
