ID: CC1122

An old time Cornish specimen of Siderite from the well known Virtuous Lady Mine, Devon, England. The Siderite is seen as honey brown to deep brown intergrown druse crystals, and forming rounded almost botryoidal coverings. The Siderite richly camouflages prismatic milky crystals of Quartz measuring to 3cm tall. Both minerals having formed on a vughy green chloritic matrix. To be seen at a magnification of x10 are tiny colourless blocky hexagonal crystals of Apatite in the Chloritic matrix, along with white areas of Kaolinite. A great specimen from this old reputedly Elizabethan mine.
