Mineral Specimen #3996 Bayldonite with Malachite and Mimetite
30 fathom level, Driggith Mine, Caldbeck Fells, Cumbria, England
5.2 x 3.3 x 1.8 cm
Small blebs and crusts of bright green Bayldonite cover much of this specimen. The Malachite is quite minor and is hard to distinguish from the Bayldonite but has a lighter, slightly more yellow tint. The Mimetite is hard to find, but consists of light colored, small crystals. The label is one from Dakota Matrix with the company information cut off.
The specimen is in fairly good condition but much of the material is contacted.
