A classic, old-time Linarite from Red Gill mine, Roughton Gill in the Caldbeck Fells of Cumbria. The Red Gill mine workings are actually situated in Swinburn Gill, not far from Red Gill itself, yet not in it as such. Red Gill mine is well-known amongst collectors for its suite of over fifty mineral species, but it is for the copper lead sulphate hydroxide, Linarite, it is best recognised. A substantial, terminated, bladed Linarite crystal measuring to 7 mm dominates a 1.5 x 1.5 cm vug. This is surrounded with other smaller, terminated crystals and crystal sections in association with a Cerussite pseudomorph after Leadhillite, pale green Brochantite and Cerussite. Glued to the specimen is an extremely old handwritten label, some of which is missing but the following wording are still clearly visible: “Cupreous Sulphate” and “Caldbeck Fells, Cumberland”. A fine, well-developed group of Linarite crystals from Red Gill mine.
