The Pcheloyad Mine is known for its classic lead minerals such as textbook-shaped two-tone Pyromorphite crystals and this is a great example of a display specimen. One prominent Pyromorphite crystal stands out as it is 1.4 cm in length along with several other crystals lined up along a ridge on the piece, all with the classic medium brown body and pale brown caps on each terminated end that are characteristic of this locality. These hexagonal, barrel-shaped Pyromorphites are set on a contrasting white Quartz matrix. Excellent for the locality in great condition.
