Pyromorphite, Cerussite
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 4.7 x 2.1 cm
Daoping Mine (Tangping Mine), Gongcheng City, Gongcheng Co., Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
An excellent, very showy, two-sided specimen festooned with lustrous, "wet-look," light apple-green pyromorphite prisms to 7 mm from recent finds at the Daoping Mine of China. The little, projecting, tassel cluster of crystals is a very nice accent. The thin crust of oxide-covered cerussite is just loaded with pyromorphite prisms. Cerussite is rare from this locale.
