Item Description

China has been one of the most productive countries for new material over the last 10 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 is a beautiful display piece consisting of sharp, lustrous, attractive apple green color Pyromorphite crystals on contrasting Quartz matrix. The color truly reminds me of old classic Euorpean Pyros, but please note that the color shows up differently depending upon the lighting under which it's viewed. A good "hand"-sized cabinet piece from this contemporary classic locality.
