Description

Liroconite is best known from the Wheal Gorland Mine but was also found at several other localities in Cornwall, like this very nice reference sample from the Wheal Unity Mine.
The specimen has a good coverage all around the sample of, unfortunately, mostly crystalline masses of liroconite but there are also some crystal-fragments present.
