Pyromorphite
stock #0626-JM-3327
Runderoth, Grunblieberg Mine, Gummersbach, Bergisches Land
North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
8.9 x 6.1 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $490
Spring update

A cabinet sized Pyromorphite densely covered with dark green crystals in good condition. An older specimen Ex. John Marshall collection of Pyromorphites, obtained by him in 1994 in Munich. The locality given of Runderoth seems to be a specific point in or near the old Grunblieberg (Green lead Mountain) mining area. Nearly all of the matrix shows at least a few Pyros, but the main display face has a 5 CM diameter dense patch of well formed crystals. John was a fanatic collector of Pyros and was on a mission to obtain the best he could find from every locality in the world. He was not able to upgrade from this one during the next 20 years of collecting.
Pyromorphite
stock #18.1-099
Freihung, Grafenwohr, Upper Palatinate
Bavaria, Germany
5.7 x 4.6 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Spring update

An older Bavarian Pyromorphite with very dense coverage collected before 1962. Glassy luster and good sparkle. This locality is now part of a military base and collecting is not possible. Crystals to 4mm cover the face of the sandstone matrix. Good color and transparent crystals in fine condition.
Pyromorphite -Hoppered crystals, classic locale
stock #13.1-075
Les Farges, Correze
Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France
2.8 x 2.4 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $300
Spring update

Excellent stacked hoppered crystals in fine condition with contrasting yellow-green terminations. The branching "V" of the two main crystal arms show off the elongated crystal structures well. Older specimen from Les Farges the crystals reach to 2.5 CM freestanding which is large for the locality. The color ranges from olive green to a mustard color and has orange hues under some lights. Strong display despite the small size
Pyromorphite- fine hoppered crystals
stock #18.1-AX 27-227
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
3.5 x 2.4 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $1550
Spring update

A perfect, top notch Pyromorphite with killer form, top color and luster. This came out of the ground in 2000 one of the first and best ever finds at Daoping. This locality is now rightly regarded as perhaps the best source ever of Pyros worldwide. This top quality and rich color is no longer found and rarely available. A modern classic, damage free with sizable crystals, this is a fine competition grade miniature.
Pyromorphite -Classic locale 1880, altering to Galena
stock #17.1-744
Grube Kautenbach, Kautenbach, Hunsruck
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
3.9 x 2.9 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $1280
Pre Holiday 2017

A fine, vintage classic specimen of very large Pyromorphite crystals that are partly altered to Galena but are mostly still Pyro. The Kautenbach mine is one of the most distinctive of all European locales and the Galena Pseudomorphs are highly prized. Pyromorphite in sharp hexagons to 2.5 CM across with some zones of Galena coatings and alterations. The oldest label lists a date of 1880, and this is in remarkable condition given that age. Most crystal faces are sharp and complete but some minor edge wear is present. Excellent patina, the Pyro crystals are huge for the location and about as large as were found. Perhaps not a "beautiful" mineral specimen but to many collectors these old Pyros are real treasures. Choice.
Pyromorphite -Vintage two toned from Classic locale
stock #1028-JM-486
Alston Moor
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
8.8 x 7 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $2200
Pre Holiday 2017

A very fine, old Pyro having two generations and two colors of crystal growth. A significant specimen, Ex John Marshall Pyromorphite collection, collected prior to 1900. John obtained this in 1972 at the Boylston Massachusetts Library auction of a collection originally donated in 1900. It took him a lot of research and trips to the British museum to clarify the locality. This is described on his detailed collection card included with the specimen. Nearly perfect, very little bruising as seen, most crystals are well defined and lustrous. A very choice example from a less well known classic locale.
Pyromorphite- Arsenian type
stock #17.1-546
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
7.2 x 3.2 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
Pre Holiday 2017

An excellent Pyromorphite in fine condition from the now classic Bunker Hill mine. Excellent color with both bright yellow and orange zones. Two generations of crystals are present most with wet look luster. Sharp hexagonal barrel type crystals to nearly 2 CM are the first generation, some are hoppered but most have flat terminations. The last generation of sparkling micro crystals on top adds a nice touch. Better in person this can be displayed from almost any angle.

Idaho, United States
3.6 x 2.9 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $390
Pre Holiday 2017

Brilliant yellow to light orange lustrous crystals of Pyromorphite from the famed Bunker Hill Mine. These are uncommon colors for Pyromorphite and this piece is in excellent condition. Several good display angles and with minimal matrix, this is a really nice small miniature from a classic, closed mine.
