Specimens of Millerite are becoming increasingly difficult to come by from the Coal mining areas like Tylorstown in South Wales. The specimen we have displays across a cavity array of slender prismatic light metallic yellow Millerite crystals. The crystals of Millerite measuring to around 1.2cm, and have a partial covering of bright emerald green secondary nickel species.
