Description

Nice specimen from this long time abandoned mine:

Deep green botroidal pseudomalachite fills vugs in iron-stained quartz matrix.

The mine was the type locality for this mineral, which has some older German synonyms (prasin, phosphorochalcite, ehlite). The name ehlite originates from the Venus mine near the small township of OberERL (not far from Rheinbreitbach), which was formerly called Ehl.
