Chloroxiphite With Diaboleite in Mendipite
Higher Pitts Mine, Priddy, near the Mendip Hills, Somerset, England
Miniature, 4.7 x 2.8 x 1.9 cm
This is an important species and locality specimen, featuring a 1.5 cm crystal of Chloroxiphite in Mendipite, with minor blue Diaboleite in association. Its worth something for the Mendipite alone! The chloroxiphite is particularly displayable as well as large. From the miniature rarities suite of Lawrence Conklin, who exchanged it from the American Museum of Natural History. Year of Discovery: 1923 at this, the type locality.
