ID: CC12266
A classic old-time miniature of Crocoite forming bright orange red terminated crystals and sections of up to 0.9 cm on a rusty coloured white Quartz veinstone matrix.  Complimenting the Crocoite are 2 to 3 mm tall micro-crystals of Pyromorphite which vary from siskin lime-green to mid-leaf green.  Several Crocoite and Pyromorphite-lined cavities occur around the sides of the specimen.  This is from the old mining area of Berezovsk (also spelt Beryozovsky or Berezovskii) in the Middle Urals of Russia and is the type locality for Crocoite, a lead chromate.  There is some quality about this specimen which makes it look old, perhaps the off-white colour of the Quartz or the patina of the Crocoite, but no matter what reason, it is a lovely example from its original location in Russia.
