ID: CC19711
Vivid chartreuse to leaf green Pyromorphite crystals richly coat the flat iron-stained surface of a dense Quartz matrix from the Příbram mining district in the Czech Republic. The Pyromorphite prisms are tiny, averaging 2 to 4 mm long and often slightly barrel-shaped with a mild bulge in their centre. Rare prisms display a hopper structure in the termination and all have a bright glassy lustre. Their colour is an intense leafy chartreuse with a deeper forest green, matt termination. Careful study suggests the cores of all crystals are the deeper forest green, over which a more vibrant leaf green outer shall has formed. A great Pyromorphite from Příbram accompanied with two previous collectors’ labels.
