Light chocolate-brown crystals of Pyromorphite richly coat the top surface of a flattish plate of micro-polycrystalline Galena with subtle foliation.  From the district around the Inn Valley, Tyrol, Austria, the Pyromorphite crystals are developed to about 7 mm in length and form curved, barrel shaped crystals with heavily striated prism faces.  The crystals lie flat against the grey-sooty Galena.
