Pyromorphite - vintage classic
Wheatley Mines, Pheonixville
Pennsylvania, United States
5.9 x 3.3 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


A small cabinet of bright drusy Pyromorphite from the famed Wheatley mine (Pennsylvania, USA). The matrix is typical for the mine, the crystals have the dark olive green color that is distinctive to the locale. This specimen is from the collection of WG Levison but unfortunately does not retain any of his labels. This dates to the 1890 era in the collection but the specimen is likely much older, as the mine had closed in the 1860's. The the crystal coverage is quite rich even though the individual crystals are small. With magnification most of these are seen as transparent, sharp and very lustrous.
