Pyromorphite
Stribro (Mies), Tachov District, Pizen Region
Bohemia, Czech Republic
5.8 x 3.9 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $290


A somewhat "normal" type of Pyromorphite from Stribro Mies. The Calcium rich Pyromorphites from Stribro were at one time proposed as a unique mineral specie "Miesite", but is simply a variety. This vintage specimen has a chain of labels calling this Miesite but it does not have the usual look with brown balls. This is a more normal type Pyro with two generations of greenish to yellow-brown crystals on gossan matrix. A nice old piece ex University of Pennslyvania, Crawford and Noll collections. Crystals to 5mm but most are smaller, in reasonably good condition especially considering the age and delicate nature of the piece.
