A very large specimen of lustrous Botallackite from Cornwall. In several habits but mostly accicular free standing crystals in several vugs. This could be trimmed to make several specimens if desired, but is fine as is to my eye. A Cornish classic copper specie, a paramorph of Atacamite and Clinoatacamite, this specimen seems to have a druse of Langite (not x-rayed) as well. Botllackites is quite rare and when from other localities are not nearly as attractive as these.
