Product Description

For sale is a Plumbogummite pseudomorphing pyromorphite, this is a rare secondary lead phosphate mineral, and the Yangshuo mine has produced undoubtedly the world most esthetic examples of the species, that until the famous find in 2014 were only really seen as specimens from the old English mining fields.  With this single crystal, which is fully terminated, you can see a small area of the specimen that still is some lemon yellow pyromorphite, that has not been replaced. These crystals, have a very ethereal color, that is rarely seen in any mineral specimen. Personally I find the blue color quite captivating. This is a well defined pronounced hopper crystal, which goes to about 10mm into the top! (describing the top termination). Superb all around, and  well balanced piece with virtually no damage.
