Ex. Lindsay Greenbank
Discrete, barrel-shaped crystals, to 8 mm across, of lustrous green mimetite are aesthetically perched high on matrix. At least two of the crystals are also doubly terminated. From the Dry Gill Mine and Ex. A. Walshaw collection, collected in their exploratory digs in the 1970s. This specimen was in Patricia's collection, specifically, at one time. Green is a rare color for this variety of mimetite, known locally as campylite.
