This is a superb and aesthetic Pyromorphite from the now famous Daoping Pb-Zn Mine of China. It is a super lustrous, like the old French material at its best, and features an elongate cluster of Pyromorphite composed of dozens of apple-green prisms averaging 1 cm in length with amazing color saturation. All of the crystals are lightly striated and the tips on some show barely discernible hoppered growth. It is pristine all around, even on the backside. It is superlative for the size, and the style. The size is what I often call intermediate - large miniature or smallish small cabinet, impressive however you classify it. It is a survivor from the early years, of color and style from the early 2000s finds here.
