This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC20331
Rich druses of vibrant bright yellowish lime-green and deeper siskin-green Pyromorphite largely cover a knarled, vuggy limonitic matrix; a classic specimen from the Wanlockhead mining area in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.  The original county name, and that at the time of mining, was Dumfriesshire.  The Pyromorphite forms as 3 to 4 mm diameter botryoidal mounds of micro-acicular crystals.  This sought after colour and habit of Pyromorphite from Wanlockhead is now very rarely come across.  This specimen comes with a nice old printed and typed label, ex. Hugh G. Ford of Wall Street, New York.
