Pyromorphite
Daoping Mine, Gongcheng County, Guilin Prefecture
Guangxi Province, China
5.4 x 5.2 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $950
Spring 2020

Pyromorphite can be an incredibly beautiful mineral, the best having great color, luster and form. This piece is certainly a fine one from the great Daoping Mine which many consider to be the greatest locality for Pyros in the world. This from one of the last good finds for the bright green unaltered type in 2017. More recent materials have much less bright color and are often at least partly altered. Crystals reach 1 CM on this piece in isolated prisms and radiating clusters these have both pointed terminations and the hollow hoppered tops so well known from this mine. In incredible condition, good Daoping Pyromorphites are one of the modern mineral markets best values. This one is especially so and it displays well from almost any angle.
