Item Description

A classic, showy and very rich pyromorphite specimen from this famous mine, closed since 1981. Lustrous, leaf-green prisms form an aesthetic, arborescent or shrub-like specimen. The striking, parallel-growth, hoppered barrels at the crest look like diverging flower or leaf clusters. The form of the crystals at the top is really nifty. Excllent material from this renowned mine.
