This is a fine large cabinet-size specimen of lustrous orange “campylite” from the classic Dry Gill mine in Caldbeck Fells, England. These beautiful, antique specimens have been prized for over 200 years and getting a good large specimen with bright luster and color like this has become rather difficult. From an old collection.
