PYROMORPHITE

$1,200.00   €1,009  £910.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC12197
A wood-like core of partially dissolved stalactitic Goethite has the majority of its surface covered in toffee-orange Pyromorphite crystals ranging between 2 and 12 mm long, the crystal size gradually increasing towards the top of the specimen. This specimen shows yet another habit and colour from the classic locality at the Les Farges Mine, Ussel, Corr├Ęze, Limousin, France.  To complete the specimen, about ten of the crystals across the top have part-castellated terminations of a rich lime-green, making a stunning contrast against the toffee-orange background.  A splendid miniature specimen from Les Farges with yet again very different characterises from the more common Pyromorphites that are more frequently seen.
