PYROMORPHITE

$3,500.00   €3,163  £2,710.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC12154
A plate of creamy-white Baryte, roughly 3.5 x 3.0 x 1.0 cm has one side and edge overgrown with Pyromorphite of varying colours from Les Farges Mine, Ussel, Corr├Ęze in France.  All the crystals covering the face are typically 5 to 7 mm long, but those along the edge of the Baryte have developed to just over 1 cm.  The smaller crystals are either a deep chocolate-brown or dark olive-green, but all with bright lime green terminations over the top 2 mm or so.   The larger crystals are mainly rich grass-green.  All crystals (smaller or larger) have feathered-acicular terminations, with some partially hoppered on the pinacoid.  Yet another fine variation in habit and colour of Pyromorphite from Les Farges.
