A thin crust of gossan matrix is host to a slightly divergent cluster of sky blue plumbogummite crystals, to 3 cm in length, that have mostly replaced pyromorphite. Most of the crystals exhibit hopper growth at their terminations. Basal portions of the crystals still have remnants of the original pyromorphite. A very nice example from the pocket with medium-sized pyromorphite crystals for this find, which would be huge by any other standard! As with most of these, there is a bit of minor damage at the lower periphery as shown.
