ID: CC4363

A rich specimen of Scorodite from the St. Day United group of mines, Gwennap, Cornwall. Under the hand-lens the crystals are a beautiful gemmy blue, lining many cavities in a vughy white Quartz, with a mixture of altered Arsenopyrite, Bornite and Goethite. Micro-feathery crystals of pale brown-white Olivenite are doted amongst the Scorodite crystals. An old label on the specimen reads as Cupreous Arsenate of Iron, before it was found that copper was not an essential part of the chemistry.
