CAMPYLITE CRYSTALS

With black manganese oxide on white vein quartz

Dry Gill Mine, Caldbeck Fells, Cumbria


The disused 19th century lead mine known as Dry Gill Mine is world famous for the mineral campylite – a remarkable phosphorus-rich variety of the lead mineral mimetite.

The name campylite originates from the Greek word kampylos which means curved, on account of its attractive barrel-shaped crystals.


This specimen was collected in the 1970s and is from an old collection.
