Caledonite, Linarite etc with Leadhillite (type locale)
stock #15.1-534
Leadhills, South Lanarkshire
Strathclyde, Scotland
5.3 x 3.6 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $560
Spring 2017

A sizable and colorful old specimen of Caledonite with crystals to 4mm mixed in a massive, platy mass. The matrix is a mass of Leadhillite and altered galena and hosts areas of other Lead species including Pyromorphite, Linarite etc. While several crystals are reasonably sharp and transparent when magnified , the overall look is a "melted", opaque appearance. Leadhills is the type locale for both Leadhillite and Caledonite, this is a particularly good coverage and size.
