Linarite

ID: CC5662

A cavity measuring to 15mm x 6mm is lined with terminated and crystal sections of mid to dark blue Linarite, with smaller cavities also with Linarite. 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.
