Mimetite Var Campylite

ID: CC389
Lustrous clusters of rounded Mimetite (var Campylite) crystals are intergrown with pearly white bladed Baryte. The Campylite crystals are an attractive reddish-orange colour, becoming more yellowish-brown around the edges of the specimen where they form a crust, intergrown with black Romanèchite. On the back are smaller lustrous crystals partially formed and intergrown with finely botryoidal black Romanèchite, cementing a Baryte breccia. Great colour and lustre, a classic English Campylite.
