ATA-3NVYeomanite, Calcite

Torr Works Quarry, Cranmore, Mendip, Somerset, England, UK

Dimensions: 41 mm x 17 mm x 17 mm
Field of View: 5 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 3 mm

An aggregate of white bladed crystals of yeomanite along with a small, upstanding aggregate of yeomanite sitting on a bed of colourless calcite crystals that, in turn, sit on an earthy black manganese oxide matrix. A second, much smaller aggregate shows a divergent spray of yeomanite crystals that bridge the gap between a slightly larger aggregate of yeomanite crystals measuring 8x4mm that are partially overgrown by a thin, colourless crust of calcite. Alan Barnes collection and photograph.

N5G-F29Somersetite, Hydrocerussite, Plumbonacrite

Torr Works Quarry, Cranmore, Mendip, Somerset, England, UK

Dimensions: 36 mm x 22 mm x 22 mm
Field of View: 21 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 12 mm

Stacked aggregate of minty green hexagonal platy crystals of somersetite some with whiteish inclusions of plumbonacrite sitting on a stack of white hydrocerussite crystals. Some of the crystals in the centre of the photo clearly show the hexagonal structure. The somersetite aggregate measures 10 x 9 x 5mm at the widest points (hydrocerussite not included in this measurement). Close to the top of the somersetite aggregate are two microscopic orange-yellow granular crystals of an unidentified mineral. Photo taken using 136 images stacked using Helicon Focus Pro and using a Canon EOS 80D camera with Canon 55-250mm lens. Specimen as a whole measures 36 x 22 x 22mm. Alan Barnes collection and photograph.
