Psilomelane

ID: CC4368

A specimen of Psilomelane from the Restormel Royal Iron Mine, Lostwithiel, Cornwall. The mine is well known for specimens of Goethite, very few specimens of the Mn-oxide Psilomelane were ever preserved. The specimen we have has a black lustrous botryoidal surface grading to a grey-black interior, with yellow-brown Goethite and white Quartz. A comparatively uncommon specimen from the mine.
