Item Description

Many styles of pyromorphite came from this locality when it produced highly, mostly between about 2002-2006. This particular style is not one I can trace to a year or pocket, but it is a look that I always found very attractive. The crystals are slightly deformed, almost curving and biological in appearance. They have a super lustrous, wet look, and light apple green color. Crystals of pyrmorphite to 1.5 cm in length grow out of a limonite vug here, mostly protected by the curvature of the specimen. A few of the crystals exhibit hoppered growth. Super color and luster! Valued $1500-1800
