Pyromorphite - large crystals, classic
Bernkastel-Kues (Mosel) Hunsruck
Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
4 x 3.1 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $890
pre Tucson 2015 update

A classic Pyromorphite from the very famous old locale of Bernkastel (Mosel) that produced the sought after Galena pseudomorphs after Pyromorphite. This is mostly unaltered Pyromorphite with the largest barrel shaped crystal 2.5 CM across. While black coatings and other alterations are noted, the Pyromorphite is mostly olive green and yellowish. There is some chipping as nearly all of these have but it is small and for some quite forgivable as this was probably collected well over 150 years ago. These are now quite rare in any condition.
