Glassy, bright lime green crystals of Pyromorphite richly scattered over an iron-stained plate of milky Quartz from Wheal Alfred, near to Hayle in the St. Erth-Gwithian district of Cornwall.  Individual crystals average 5 mm in length and form tapering hexagonal prisms with pointed terminations.  An attractive specimen with three previous labels from Wheal Alfred, probably the best known Cornish locality for Pyromorphite.
