On a Quartz matrix with Cerussite, rare isolated Susannite crystals, and one or two spots of yellow Pyromorphite. The Quartz is also spotted with blue Linarite on a vein of Malachite replaced Galena covering a hard brown Goethite. Of the two well known minerals Caledonite and Linarite from the Orefield Linarite is evidently by far the least abundant of the two species.
