Langite on Brochantite

$850.00   €835  £710.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC8779
A rich crust of vivid turquoise-powder-blue Langite overgrowing deep leaf-green micro-crystallized Brochantite on a light grey slate matrix. From the well-known locality at Allihies, the Castletown-Bearhaven Copper mines on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork, Ireland, the Langite also forms patches of micro-crystals within the Brochantite sub-layer.  A rich and fine example from Ireland.  This old specimen is accompanied with a Samuel Henson (1848-1930) of 277 Strand, London, labelled ‘Langite, Cornwall’.  Although misattributed as to its locality, this label has been retained with the specimen because of its historic interest.
