Description:China has been one of the most productive countries for new material over the last 15 years. The quantity and quality of the finds in China have been remarkable. The finest contemporary green Pyromorphites on the market right now are those from the Daoping mine in China. I was told that the section of the mine that produced these pieces is now closed and will never again produce these superb Pyromorphites. This specimen hosts sharp, lustrous, attractive, yellow green color, prismatic hexagonal crystals that formed on a lovely "halo"-shaped piece of gossan matrix. What great form, aesthetics and overall appeal on this full-sized thumbnail specimen of this contemporary classic material. Top pieces with this color are valuable on the market now.
