Pyromorphite

ID: CC1066

A great colour combination Pyromorphite from the most well known Leadhills location at the Susanna Mine. The old Susanna Mine probably worked before the 18th century and is justly celebrated as a fine Lead species producing mine. The Pyromorphite we have is a brightly coloured specimen composed of interlocking crystals. It has alternating colour banding from a rich bright orange through yellow to greenish yellow. The crystals have formed around a central cavity and make a very attractive display. A pleasing specimen of Pyromorphite from Scotland, that will certainly stand out in your display cabinet!
