Description

World class Plumbogummite pseudomorphose after Pyromorphite from China!
Extraordinary specimen in top quality!

This outstanding specimen is in the top of pieces for the find, and is a very aesthetic group of large barrel-shaped pyromorphite crystals which have been mostly replaced by blue plumbogummite. The color is exceptional for the species and find, and the crystals form divergent sprays which seem to radiate out from many different points, creating an overall look that is visually-stunning. It is rare to find a mineral specimen that is both aesthetically exceptional and rare, and this contemporary Chinese classic fits that bill perfectly.
