Description

Dark moss-green pyromorphite crystals on matrix - from one of the most renowned classic pyromorphite localities of Germany. There is little damage, but most of the crystals showing whitish tips are not damaged - this is a thin coating of another mineral (probably cerussite), which I think can be removed.
