||HOLD Pyromorphite on Malachite
Brown's open pit, Rum Jungle
Northern Territory, Australia
5.3 x 4.3 CM (miniature)
From the epic finds of 2010 this specimen and several that follow are excellent example of real modern classics. Fine sharp and lusterous pyromorphites are densely scattered on the deep green Malachite base. From the "Pizza Pocket" there are 2 tiny damaged crystals that are not easily noticed, all the others are perfect. Great color and balance, as nice a small specimen as can be found. This location has been flooded since the discovery and this small group of specimens were obtained just after the find. There are no more.
