Olivenite on Quartz - classic Cornwall (Ref: 12.1-022)

Wheal Carpenter, Fraddam, Gwinear-Gwithian, Cornwall, England
51mm x 39mm x 41mm
Well-crystallized Olivenites are protected in a shallow vug lined with Quartz crystals. In excellent condition, ex Don Shultz collection. The Olivenites are deep green, glassy lustrous and many are doubly terminated. From Wheal Carpenter according to the original label, this is a small mine that operated sporadically from 1792-1855. We have never seen another example from this locality. This specimen is similar to other Olivenites from this region, though the crystals here are a bit larger than others we have seen.
