Pyromorphite, Quartz
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 5.3 x 3.7 cm
Resuperferolitica Mine, Cerro Canaleja, Santa Eufemia, Cordoba, Andalusia, Spain
Lustrous, translucent, classic hexagonal, olive-green pyromorphite crystals to 1.0 cm richly cover the front and top of this aesthetic specimen from a smallish 1995 find in Spain at a less well-known mine. The architecture of the crystal clusters is striking and this is one of the finest pieces, that I have seen available from this mine in a while. Ex. Joan Massague Collection (noted for his Spanish minerals suite) .
