Pyromorphite with partial Galena pseudomorphs
Daoping Mine, Gongcheng County, Guilin Prefecture
Guangxi Province, China
5.7 x 3.7 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1350
new year 2021

A very rich and super esthetic Pyromorphite from the great finds at Daoping in Guanxi, China. Two generations of well-formed Pyros have slightly different hues of green and all have excellent bright luster. The larger crystals are free standing and reach 1.3 CM. Terminations of the larger crystals are both hopper habit and prismatic with the larger being more the cavernous hoppered type. On a few sides of these prisms there are secondary alterations of rare pseudomorphing to a Galena sheath which is the overgrown by a third generation of extra bright green Pyro. This phenomenon is very rare worldwide, but well-known from just a few European locales and ultra rare from China. Overall this is incredible condition, it is even better in person and is an excellent example of the specie and the locality.
