This fine Pyromorphite is from the famous finds of 2003-2006, and it has several very good presentation angles. From one, you can see two hedgehog-like clusters of well-crystallized Pyromorphite. Rotate the specimen, and you see the sides of the clusters along with the main part of the plate. It is complete all around and has unusually good three-dimensional relief. The color is a rich green, typical for the locality, and the luster is very good. From below, you can actually see the insides of the cluster looking up from underneath, which is exceptional and uncommon. Quite aesthetic, and for the size, a superb example of this classic find.
