Pyromorphite on matrix
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
5.9x3.7x 2.2 (miniature)
Matrix with very well crystallized bright green prisms standing on end. Individual crystals to .9cm displays very well. This type of Pyromorphite is simply no longer being found, it has proven to be one of the greatest of all the Chinese mineral finds, and old stock of this quality is fast disappearing. a very fine miniature at a very good price.
White translucent Calcites to over 5 cm on matrix well covered with bright orange acicular Orpiment. Some minor Realgar is present too, This find of Calcites had produced a lot of material but much was badly damaged, and there are very few matrix pieces. This has top color and the Orpiment is in very good condition too.
