- Plumbogummite ps Pyromorphite
- Small Cabinet, 9.5 x 6.0 x 4.5 cm

Rising aesthetically from a pyromorphite cleavage mass are two replaced crystals, to 6 cm in length, exhibiting cavernous and elongated hoppered growth and a wonderful sky blue color of plumbogummite. Some contact to smaller crystals has occurred, but the soaring beauty of the two large plumbogummite after pyromorphite crystals is undiminished by that and in fact contrasts well to the exposed green pyromorphite that now comprises the base. They are pristine and, remarkably, complete all around. This specimen is very different from most, and is more elegant than blocky.
