This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC8770
Rich drusy mats of intergrown deep olive-green Olivenite crystals cover an undulating vuggy upper surface of a ferruginous milky Quartz veinstone matrix.  Under low magnification, the carpet of Olivenite crystals are seen to be perfectly terminated and present a most attractive speckled luster.  This specimen, from Wheal Gorland in St. Day, Cornwall, legendary for its rare copper arsenate minerals, is an excellent example of this particular Olivenite morphology.
