||Pyromorphite on Barite (Unusual twisted crystals)
Mine des Farges, Ussel, Correze
8.2 x 6 CM (cabinet)
A rich, classic des Farges specimen from the John Marshall Pyromorphite collection. A pretty and unusual piece that is also well documented, this was found in 1965. Deep green color and wet luster with both hoppered hollow crystals and twisting tube forms covers the display face densely. The matrix is pure barite with typical platy crystals and dark staining. A very good example that is better in hand.
