Clinoclase, Olivenite
Toenail, 2.8 x 2.4 x 2.0 cm
Gwennap area, Camborne - Redruth - St Day District, Cornwall, England, UK
A SUPERB, AESTHETIC and OLD-TIME Cornwall specimen of a vertical cleft lined with sparkly, midnight-blue microcrystals of clinoclase and bridged by lustrous, forest-green needles of olivenite (a rare combination and habit). This is a beautiful, classic and very desirable combination piece from Cornwall. This piece is easily over 100 years old.
