A fine pyromorphite on malachite from the now famous 2010 find at Rum Jungle, N.T. Its really hard to catch the true lively nature of the surface of these specimen, anything that appears white is actually a flashing crystal face. The 2010 fine of these outstanding pyromorphite and malachite, set a new standard for this classic old location. Activity at this mine has now finished, the pit is flooded, there will be no more off these unique specimens, which have been appreciating rapidly in value since first appearing on the market, at Tuscon in 2011! The lime green pyromorphite crystals give deeper green botryoidal malachite great emphasis. We obtained this specimen in a recent swap with Paul Melville, who originally mined them! You will not find them at a more reasonable price anywhere!! Ex Paul Melville collection.
