Description

Fantastic cluster of about a dozen of intergrown pyromorphite crystals from Germany. The deep orange and super lustrous crystals form a nice sculptural formation and give an awesome visual appearence due to their fine lustre around the whole specimen. Some areas show a more satturated colour while some are a bit more pale compared to the rest. But these orange crystals are absolutely exceptional for this famous classic locality!
