Cerussite Crystals – Tynagh Mine, County Galway, Ireland

Cerussite Crystals

North Gate Dumps,

Tynagh Mine,

County Galway,

Ireland

 

This specimen is essentially a very dense mass of elongated jackstraw cerussite crystals with small patches of an unidentifid light blue mineral.

Unfortunately specimens like this are seldom recovered from the locality these days given the amount of redevelopment that has taken place.

This specimen was collected back in the late 1990’s from the North Gate dumps, which are unfortunately now the site of a new power station!
