In February 2023, an exciting discovery emerged from the Diana Maria mine in Weardale, County Durham, located in the north-east of England. This remarkable find was named the "Greedy Hog Pocket" and occurred at the junction of the Greenbank and River Catcher Veins. The Greenbank Vein, which has been followed by the Rogerley mine since the early 1970s, was encountered from a different direction by the Diana Maria mine.

These specimens primarily consist of Fluorite accompanied by Galena, while a few feature Fluorite alone. What truly sets this combination apart is the aesthetic arrangement of interpenetrant twins, presented as individual distinct formations, often sparsely scattered over the Galena. This unique composition exemplifies the concept of "less is more" and adds to the allure of the discovery.
