Item Description

Lustrous, apple-green, pyromorphite prisms to 8 mm selectively and richly cover the very sculptural gossan crust on this excellent specimen from the famed Daoping Mine of China. The piece looks like a personal watercraft or a snowmobile in two views. These pyromorphites have become contemporary classics and rank among the finest ever found, worldwide. A showy, highly representative specimen.
