Pyromorphite

ID: CC11974
A beautiful and highly aesthetic stalactitic Pyromorphite from the classic and much-loved Les Farges mine at Ussel, Corr├Ęze, France; a mine famed for its superb pyromorphite which forms specimens of vastly differing colour and habit.  At 5.6 cm long, a mainly hidden log-like, chocolate limonitic matrix is encrusted with lustrous, mustard-yellow hexagonal prisms of Pyromorphite to about 7 mm long and up to 3 mm wide.  Their terminations form stepped pinacoids, many of which show part hopper-like structures.  A fantastic miniature of Pyromorphite from Les Farges and at great price.
