Miniature, 4.3 x 2.8 x 2.7 cm
Rosenberg Mine, Braubach, Bad Ems District, Lahn valley, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
A beautiful, elegant, curving cluster of intergrown pyromorphite crystals from the 1800's, from this famous old locale. This is the classic style for the locality but rarely do you see such pristine specimens surviving to today, with high luster and good form all around as this one has. It is a superb miniature at, I think, a really reasonable price compared to what I saw available on the European market in Munich - often larger specimens but more clunky and with less luster, at higher prices.
