Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 3.4 x 3.4 cm
Daoping Mine (Tangping Mine), Gongcheng City, Gongcheng Co., Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
Lustrous, apple-green pyromorphite prisms to 8 mm selectively and richly cover the very sculptural gossan crust on this excellent specimen from the Daoping Mine of China. The piece looks like a personal watercraft or a snowmobile in two views. These pyromorphites have become contemporary classics and rank among the finest ever found, worldwide. A fine, highly representative specimen.
