Caledonite on Cerussite, Red Gill, Cumbria

Ask my granddaughter and she will tell you that my favourite colour is blue. And what can be nicer than a blue caledonite, particularly when it is from a locality that I visited on a trip to the UK. This specimen was previously in the Bernie Day collection. Many society members would know Bernie from his trips over to the UK many years ago. It is a specimen of caledonite with cerussite and quartz from the Red Gill Mine, Caldbeck Fells, Cumbria, England.
