ID: CC19215
This unusually coloured and rare habit of Pyromorphite will surely appeal to the dedicated collector of this species because of its highly different characteristics.  Enveloping a heavy core of Galena, creamy-buff Pyromorphite forms a drusy botryoidal coating intermixed with stubby terminated Quartz crystals averaging 5 to 7 mm diameter.  The Pyromorphite has a fine velvety texture with a resultant matt lustre.  The botryoidal druses are dusted with a pale apricot orange deposit of Pyromorphite which highlights the texture and surface morphology.  A lovely specimen from Stríbro in the Plzen Region of the Czech Republic.
