Mimetite var Campylite- classic locale
Dry Gill Mine, Caldbeck Fells
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
3 x 2.7 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $100
Spring update

A nice small example of the Campylite habit of Mimetite that is so famed from Dry Gill. This ancient (it was already old in the 17th century) locality once was world renowned, every serious collection had specimens from here. Now closed for many years it is a true classic locale. Good luster, a nice Botryoidal form, and a light orange to green color. The display side is in fine condition, it is contacted on the back.
