Pyromorphite on Plumbogummite

ID: CC20316
Balls of lime-green Pyromorphite are richly scattered over intense cornflower-sky blue druses of Plumbogummite lining the vuggy surface of a Quartz veinstone.  From Roughton Gill in the Caldbeck Fells of Cumbria, this combination is probably the most iconic mineral from this classic and historic mining area of the English Lake District.  The Pyromorphite spheres average 1 to 2 mm in diameter and although this sounds quite small, against the vivid blue Plumbogummite, the contrast is superb, making this a very good representative specimen of this most sought after combination.
