Calcite with Malachite and Dolomite

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

ID: CC8903
A mammillary, drusy form of colourless and translucent Calcite appears an earthy peppermint green due to a rich underlying bed of micro-acicular Malachite.  This specimen is from the Great Orme copper mine at Llandudno, North Wales, which dates back to the Bronze Age and was a very important centre for copper production at that time.  The Calcite and Malachite richly cover the top surface of a brecciated group of light tan Dolomite plates, all surfaces of which are covered in nicely developed saddle-shaped Dolomite crystals with a little intermixed Chalcopyrite.
