Cuprite Var Chalcotrichite

ID: CC4774

Fine reticulated inter grown nests of acicular Cuprite variety Chalcotrichite crystals probably from the Fowey Consols Mine, Tywardreath, although an old label just gives Cornwall as the location. Crystals of Chalcotrichite are seen lining many cavities in a black-light brown Goethite-Quartz Gossan. A fine specimen of the Cuprite variety from the mine.
