Pyromorphite (fine hoppered crystals)
Daoping Mine, Gongcheng County, Guilin Prefecture
Guangxi Province, China
4.6 x 4.6 CM (miniature)
price: $975
Spring 2013

Top color, luster and with great esthetic form, these Pyros are up to 2 CM free standing above the contrasting matrix. There are 2 generations here, the smaller, lighter green crystals have a unusual prismatic pyramidal termination that is very uncommon. The larger deeper "electric" green crystals exhibit the hoppered form and "veil" structures that are classic for this location. In perfect condition by naked eye, with 10x magnification some very tiny broken crystals can be found. Displays well from all sides, this is a the sort of quality that made Daoping Pyros world famous.
