Plumbogummite, Mimetite, Quartz
Yangshuo Mine, Yangshuo Co., Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 6.7 x 2.2 cm
A striking specimen of finger-like and bubbly, blue-green plumbogummite partially pseudomorphing yellow-green mimetite crystals on a 3-dimensional, plumbogummite-covered quartz matrix plate from the 2005 find at the Yangshuo Pb-Zn Mine of China. The scattered broken crystals show the unaltered, mimetite interiors. The Yangshuo Mine is on the other side of the mountain from the Daoping Mine, source of most of the Chinese pyromorphite.
