description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY:  New Cornwall Mine, Kadina, South Australia (state) <br /><br />1 7/16" long <br /><br />Atacamite is a rare mineral species that is found at few copper mines around the world. The largest crystals of the species were mined at Moonta-Wallaroo-Kadina before the turn of the last century. This is the largest atacamite crystal that I have ever owned. Although a small number of even larger crystals were preserved, this crystal is an impressive one in terms of size.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">I bought this piece from David Cowen of Adelaide, South Australia (state) during a visit to his home in mid 2014.  David bought it from the collection of the late Harvey and Joan Henley.  They bought it from Albert Chapman.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Jeff Scovil </p>
