Pyromorphite on Baryte
Les Farges Mine, Ussel, Correze, Limousin, France
Miniature, 5.2 x 3.1 x 2.9 cm
Ex. Howard Belsky
Massive amber-colored Baryte is the host to barrel-shaped crystals of lustrous, apple green pyromorphite, to 1 cm in length. A few crystals are contacted but the overall floral arrangement of crystals is unaffected. This is from the classic old French locality, and was probably mined in the 1960s or 1970s. Ex Howard Belsky collection.
