Olivenite Var Wood Copper/ Wood Olivenite

ID: CC981

An excellent example of Wood Copper from one of the best locations in Cornwall for the variety, namely Wheal Unity, St. Day. The Olivenite forms a thick coating up to 1cm deep on a white Quartz matrix. The specimen displays to advantage the radial annular formation of the Wood Copper. The colour is from a very light brown at the center of the circular Wood Copper to a much deeper brown at the rims; with a fine silky luster. The Wood Copper is overgrown by more typical green Olivenite, and cavities are lined with sparkling drusy crystals. A very fine specimen of this variety of Olivenite from Wheal Unity.
