Botallackite - very rich specimen
Cligga Mine, Cligga Head, Perranporth, Perranzabuloe, St. Agnes District
7.8 x 5.9 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
Early summer 2023
A fine and sizable classic Botallackite from Cligga Head (Cornwall) with dense coverings of bright vivid green crystals. A fairly rare Copper Chloride, these crystals are on every side of the matrix. There are two larger flat faces on either side that are nearly solid lustrous Botallackite. Not often seen as display quality specimens (most are micros) this piece has fine impact. Quite big crystals for the specie and on an attractive cabinet sized matrix .
