Paratacamite

ID: CC5424

Micro-crystals of the rare for Britain mineral Paratacamite, are seen aggregated and scattered in a Quartz cavity. On Goethite, some in the form of fibrous banded Wood Iron matrix. On closer examination, the deep to light green Paratacamite is seen to be composed of intergrown crystals. A rare specimen from the Botallack Mine, near St. Just. The label states that it came from the Guide Lode, which are lode's that run counter to the normal trend of the prevailing lode's.
