Boulby Potash Mine, Loftus, North Yorkshire, England
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.1 x 3.2 cm
Ex. Lindsay Greenbank
Highly lustrous and translucent crystals of turquoise-blue boracite, to.5 cm across are clustered together in a vug. Recovered by a mine surveyor in 1993, this is one of the most brilliantly lustrous and intensely colored specimens we have seen. It is highly displayable, and a significant example from this brief find. Prominently featured in Minerals of Northern England, as a full page photograph on page 54 of that book.
