Witherite

ID: CC3946

A fine cluster of parallel position Witherite crystals from one of the north of England's best known locations for Witherite specimens, namely the Fallowfield Mine, Hexham. The specimen displays excellent depiction of the oscillatory growth between the prism and pyramid faces up the length of the crystal. Translucent lustrous crystals of Witherite show classic terminations of the pyramid with a small development of a pinacoid. Crystals of Witherite are formed over a light grey altered Limestone matrix.
