Pyromorphite, Cerussite
Cabinet, 13.5 x 6.5 x 3.9 cm
Daoping Mine (Tangping Mine), Gongcheng City, Gongcheng Co., Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China

A rich specimen from a heralded find about a year ago, exciting for this association of two lead minerals. Here, you have a rich field of light green crystals of pyromorphite, with a row of flat, reticulated white crystals of cerussite that have grown in a shallow recess. There was not a lot of this material, and the cerussites were usually far less aesthetic than these - usually sort of formless lumps. So this is quite a good specimen for this find.
