A 3.5 cm thick hematitic ironstone has its top display surface richly populated with long acicular Pyromorphite crystals from the Ivanhoe mine at Tenant Creek, in the Northern Territory state of Australia.  Tenant Creek is a well-known yet remote mining district which contains several important gold-copper-bismuth mines.  The Pyromorphite forms long slender prisms of up to 1.2 cm long of limey spring green.  Those which lie flat against the dark ironstone matrix are double terminated.  This is a rare specimen of well crystallised Pyromorphite from the Ivanhoe mine at Tenant Creek, NT.
