Pyromorphite - classic British
Roughtongill Mine, Caldbeck Fells
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
4.8 x 3.8 x 3.7 CM (miniature)
price: $460
Spring 23

From the Roughtongill Mine this is nearly all Pyromorphite with almost no matrix. A solid crystal mass with two generations the larger crystals are more green, the smaller more yellow. Ex Les Hitchings collection, obtained in 1974 during a collecting trip to the mine with Richard Barstow. A choice piece with crystals to 1.3 CM and in very good condition. The tiny bit of matrix is crystallized Quartz so the specimen is quite heavy and sturdy.
