Pyromorphite on Malachite
stock #0589-JM-3764
Brown's open pit, Rum Jungle
Northern Territory, Australia
9.5 x 4.7 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
new year 2021

An older Rum Jungle specimen (1970 vintage) that is quite different and with far more vivid color than recent specimens. Ex. John H. Marshall collection, this has very lustrous bright green Pyromorphites and some small brown crystals as well. The Malachite is almost invisible on the front face except in a few nooks, it is much more well-defined on the back and sides where it forms fibrous crystals.

Pyromorphite on Malachite
stock #21.1-008
Brown's open pit, Rum Jungle
Northern Territory, Australia
5.8 x 4.1 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
new year 2021

A fine example of Rum Jungle Pyromorphite with sharp and well-defined crystals set on a darker Malachite matrix. The Pyromorphite on this specimen is so dense that the Malachite is almost fully hidden and is only visible through small gaps and on the edges. In excellent condition, the color and luster are better in person too. This remarkable locality has been flooded for some time now, this piece is from the last successful specimen extraction, and is a super example of top quality from the "Pizza Pocket".
