This antique green Pyromorphite from Germany is an aesthetic knob of robust crystals on matrix, replete with old collection labels. It exhibits prismatic, barrel shaped, olive green crystals, to 1.3 cm in length. The crystals are slightly lustrous and translucent along with a few being doubly-terminated. An old collection label has the date of 1838! Other collection labels are from the old state of Saxony Museum in Freiberg, The Smithsonian, and Herb Obodda. A very important, massive, display-quality old timer from the core German suite of the Obodda collection.
