Serpentine, Anglesey

Serpentine, Anglesey

The principle outcrop of serpentinite in Anglesey is near Rhoscolyn, from where I collected his specimen. The main component of the serpentinite is serpentine, which is s serpentin-ized gabbro. It is a brecciated rock with inclusions of calcite. When handled it has a very "soapy" feel.
