A STUNNING specimen of a curved vug FILLED with highly lustrous, "wet-look," two-tone, apple-green, acicular pyromorphite crystals and fantastically capped by a snow-white, "snowflake," very finely reticulated cerussite crystal on this SUPERB piece from a very small 2007 find at the famous Daoping Mine of China. The green color is gorgeous and the well-placed snowflake is outrageous, it looks like a space shuttle with wings. Some of the pyro crystals are hoppered.
