Light to deep olive green acicular crystals of Olivenite richly invest an elongated triangular area on the display face of the specimen, from Wheal Phoenix, Linkinhorne, Cornwall. Needle-like crystals of Olivenite attain a length of 4mm on dark brown Goethite. The matrix is of grey 'hornefels' with white to copper stained green Kaolinite, some displaying a porcelaineous luster. Several cavities associated with the Goethite also have crystals of Olivenite. Classic Olivenite crystal habit from the mine.
