ID: CC8756
Well-developed barrel-shaped crystals to 5 mm of burnt toffee-orange Mimetite, variety “Campylite” from the classic locality of Dry Gill mine in the Caldbeck Fells, Cumbria.  Masses of these crystals pervade a soot-black manganese oxide (“Psilomelane”) matrix, against which they display to full advantage.  A terrific example from this now inaccessible mine, high above Roughton Gill.
