A beautiful, ex-matrix, tower of stacked, double terminated barley sugar orange Pyromorphite crystals from Friedrichssegen mine at Frücht in the famous Bad Ems District of Germany.  This old lead mine exploited Siderite-bearing quartz veins which included zinc-lead-copper and silver mineralisation.  The lustrous, glassy Pyromorphite crystals average around 1 cm each in length, although all are below 2 cm.  The top crystal of the second tallest stack is capped with creamy Pyromorphite with a micro-sugary texture.  A very displayable example of Pyromorphite from the Friedrichssegen mine in Bad Ems.
