From the Dry Gill Mine comes a specimen of mimetite crystals featuring round, barrel-shaped crystals with hemispherical tops on coronadite. The crystals are brightly lustrous and are colored a rich golden brown.  This is an excellent example of the classic English mimetites once known by the varietal name of campylite in the mid-1800s. On one corner 2 of the crystals are damaged, but the rest are pristine.
