Plumbogummite ps Pyromorphite
Cabinet, 11.4 x 7.0 x 5.0 cm
Yangshuo Mine, Yangshuo Co., Guilin Pref., Guangxi Zhuang, China
Another unusual specimen from this lot, showing densely packed, short plumbogummite after pyromorphite crystals completely covering a solid and heavy matrix plate of pyromorphite. This is one of the few of this aspect we saw, and came out in the beginning of the pocket veins here, in mid-2014. The bottom of the plate is botryoidal pyromorphite as well (strange!). The crystals have an excellent blue color and the piece is rich and impactful.
