Roughton Gill, Caldbeck Fells, North and Western Region (Cumberland), Cumbria, England, UK
Ex. Dr. Gary Hansen
This is not just a CABINET-sized killer for the locality, but its a darned good pyro by ANY worldwide standards as well, because of the natural wet luster and rich color. Of course, the fact that is a rare large plate of a 120-plus-year-old classic from the U.K. doesn't hurt, either! ex Gary Hansen collection, purchased from Wayne Thompson by Ed for 10k in 1999. It is an eleganlty curved plate of solid pyromorphite, basically complete all around though with lesser quality crystals on backside. It has a very wet-looking luster and color as conveyed in the photos. Like I said, a killer in every sense!. 9 x 9 x 2.5 cm
