Liroconite from Cornwall is a rare species, with most specimens being found in the mid-1800s. This piece, though small, is rich overall and has crystals of a fantastic quality in sharpness and blue color saturation. Liroconite of this quality has not been found in over 125 years. Although there are some damaged zones, there are many good areas too, protected in the folds of matrix here.
