ID: CC10312

This fine cabinet specimen is typical of the minerals that came out of Wheal Jane during its revived period of operation during the 1970’s and 80’s until its closure.  A heavy matrix of cryptocrystalline grey and white quartz containing disseminated pyrite and chalcopyrite is richly coated with colourless to grey-white well-developed and terminated Quartz crystals together with compound crystals of inky-black Sphalerite crystals.  Set against a greenish-grey chloritized crust which covers the matrix, the Quartz crystals grow to over 2 cm long in a diverse orientation.  The Sphalerite varies from equant individual crystals to complex groups, one group of which is dusted with micro-crystals of Pyrite.  A great and characteristic specimen from Wheal Jane at Baldhu, Kea, Cornwall, England.
