- Plumbogummite ps Pyromorphite
- Small Cabinet, 9.6 x 8.7 x 7.8 cm
- Yangshuo Mine, Yangshuo Co., Guilin Pref., Guangxi Zhuang, China
This specimen has some of the largest and most robust crystals of any in the find, to 5.5 cm in size. The pyromorphite is partially replaced by plumbogummite, particularly on the display side. The colors, therefore, are mixed with green and powder blue, and a darker olive green where there is just a surface replacement that started. The specimen shows completely different from either side! It is massive, heavy, and robust, and presents from the front as a "pyromorphite" in classic style except that the color is so weird! The crystals that look so sharp in front, have exquisite and minute hoppering when looked at from behind, right up into their partially hollowed terminations. Unusual!
