Steverustite With Caledonite

ID: CC934

Micro-crystals of Steverustite invest a small cavity on a mixed supergene matrix of Caledonite, Leadhillite and Cerussite. Steverustite forms silky lath crystals as fan-like and networks groups on the specimen. Steverustite from this location is recorded in the paper by Hawthorne et al (2009).  Only a handful of examples were collected by Steve Rust from Horner's Vein. There are several other locations in the United Kingdom where Steverustite has been found (it has never been found outside of the UK), all the known locations have only produced a very limited number of specimens. It is surprising that this mineral has not so far been found in other old European mining areas.
