Small Cabinet, 7.9 x 5.9 x 5.0 cm
Daoping Mine (Tangping Mine), Gongcheng City, Gongcheng Co., Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
The pyromorphites from China stopped coming out quite awhile back now, and of course, they dried up from the market quickly. They quickly took their place beside those from Lefarge and Bunker Hill in terms of quality. Some, the neon green ones, even went a step beyond. This specimen has an unusual "design" - making it remarkably aesthetic. Rising from the matrix is a 3-cm "burst" of crystals, complete and undamaged all around. The front edge of the supporting matrix is covered with crystals as well. Not your usual flat plate - and stands up all by itself!
