- Plumbogummite ps Pyromorphite
- Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 6.0 x 4.0 cm
- Yangshuo Mine, Yangshuo Co., Guilin Pref., Guangxi Zhuang, China
Stout, slightly diverging, sky blue crystals of plumbogummite to 5 cm in length clearly exhibit hoppered growth at their terminations. Vestiges of the ancestral pyromorphite can be seen at the base of some crystals. A beautiful and rather elegant cluster compared to most. Note this could perhaps be a large miniature if displayed one way, but is more properly shown as a small cabinet, a bit on its side and more balanced.
