ID: CC11582
A superb Pyromorphite with an excellent development of hopper crystals and stepped growth from the San Andrés mine at Espiel in Andalusia, Spain. Spain certainly has more than its fair share of wonderful Pyromorphite localities! This fine specimen is a pleasing light creamy green grading to yellow and bright yellow-green. It’s an unusual colour and the creamy green zones remind me of a lime milkshake, yummy in both cases! One cavity shows a form of stalactitic-ribbon growth. Some of the crystals are broad and flat, formed as wide hexagonal plates up to 1.5 cm wide yet only 5 mm deep. All crystals are translucent grading to more opaque centres and with a bright glassy lustre. A splendid specimen from the San Andres mine.
