Pyromorphite
Tjivotan
SW Java, Indonesia
6.5 x 5 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


This is a special and odd piece in our series of rare and exotic localities for Pyromorphite. Ex. John Marshall Pyro collection and Larry Conklin, I can find no information about this locality in SW Java, and only one Lead mine in the region but not by this name. John was a dedicated collector and researcher of Pyromorphite, he built an incredible, comprehensive suite including many unique and obscure localities. This piece also has an older German label and many collection numbers affixed, it seems to have been in many previous hands. The crystals are on both sides of a gossan matrix and are unusually dark green nearly black in person. Most are in fine shape but some chipping can be found on close inspection, overall a nice Pyro and exotic.
