Galena Pseudomorph After Pyromorphite

ID: CC566
A curiosity mined in the 1860s of sparkling dark grey Galena pseudomorphing Pyromorphite crystals. This is a real Cornish classic and a great miniature display specimen. The crystals have a 'barrel' shaped to acicular crystal shape and form diverging crystal clusters. A must for the serious collector!
