Plumbogummite ps Pyromorphite
Yangshuo Mine, Yangshuo Co., Guilin Pref., Guangxi Zhuang, China
Small Cabinet, 9.2 x 7.0 x 5.7 cm
A thin sliver of matrix hosts a cluster of diverging crystals, to 5 cm in length, of hoppered growth, light sky blue plumbogummite after pyromorphite. At the base of some crystals are lustrous, olive green vestiges of the original pyromorphite. This fine specimen stands upright on its own accord but displays well from both horizontal and vertical positions. It is very dramatic and 3-dimensional in person with huge fat crystals.
