A large portion of a fracture surface on this piece is essentially covered with pale brown to brown-pink, prismatic crystals of allactite to 0.5mm, partially outlined by a wide band of brown to almost black crust of pyrochroite. From the Moss mine, Nordmark, Filipstad, Varmland, Sweden, the type locality.

This classic elongated unusually sharp lead crystal clear faces It
Langban, Sweden
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.6 x 1.2 cm
This is a classic, elongated, but unusually sharp lead crystal with clear faces. It has been left "dirty" rather than cleaned to be penny-bright and metallic, because I value the antique look on these. This is technically a single floater crystal, complete all around, but the visual appearance is of a 3 cm crystal on matrixy-lookin' lead at its base. The base also is dotted with sharp allactite crystals to 4 or 5 mm in size.
