Pyromorphite
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
7.4 x 5.3 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $2600


Outstanding small cabinet specimen of very well crystallized Pyromorphite from the "golden years" of the great Daoping Mine. Ex. collection of Frances and Shields Flynn, this is a now classic habit that has grown on a hollow cast of pure Pyromorphite that is seen on the backside. In super clean condition with rich deep color, many of the crystals show hoppered terminations but others have tapered or flat tips. This locality became instantly famous in 2000 when the first good pieces can out. The "golden years" that followed produced what many feel were the best ever Pyros. Production is now minimal and sporadic, this quality and size is no longer to be found. This specimen was exhibited in 2005 in the Tucson (TGMS) China display. Excellent value for this quality.
