Pyromorphite
stock #4.2-372
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
7 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $975


A fine intense green Pyro from the incredible 2001 find at the Daoping Mine. A This has the delicate accicular habit in 2 distinct generations that are sprouting from a large vug. Despite the delicacy of this specimen there is minimal damage (mostly at the outer edges) and it displays very well. A rich wet look luster adds to the visual impact. Daoping Pyros are some of the finest ever found, and still relatively affordable.
Pyromorphite on Malachite
stock #11.1 -W51
Brown's open pit, Rum Jungle
Northern Territory, Australia
10.4 x 7.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1500


A fine, large specimen from the epic 2010 find that was the mineral discovery of the year. A very rich example of the "emerald pocket) the matrix has numerous malachite spheres scattered on a bed of deep grass green velvety malachite. The surface is covered with hundreds of sharp olive green to lemon green Pyromorphites. Bright luster and in great condition, this has a striking color contrast. Well better than average for this find, and it now seems that there will be no more. Very attractive and destined to be a classic.
Pyromorphite (ex. John Marshall collection)
stock #1036-JM-973
Hard Rigg Edge, Melmercy Fell, Alson Moor
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
8 x 6.4 Cm. (cabinet)
price: $300


A very nice example of Cumberland pyromorphite with a strong green color. Individual crystals are mostly under 2 mm and form a dense carpet on the matrix. Shows good coverage on both sides. Collected by John Marshall in 1994, his notes state: "one of the best found there, perhaps indicative of what may still be found deeper"
Pyromorphite (Ex Lechner, John Marshall)
stock #0100-JM-141
Bleistadt
Bohemia, Czech Republic
6.2 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


A very old specimen from Bleistadt, this vuggy matrix holds about half a dozen lustrous Pyros. Similar but slightly darker than Bad Ems color these crystals reach 9mm. From the famous Lechner collection that was sold by Schortmann in the 60's. Classic and very rare, in excellent condition.
Pyromorphite
stock #8.1-294
Bad Ems
Lahn Valley, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
4.2 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $300


A fine, old, lusterous and esthetic pyro from one of the most classic locations of all, Bad Ems. This is also a classic form as it shows the stacked chain like growth of the individual crystals that flare to form a tree like structure. Good rich orange to dark salmon color and minimal damage that is clearly not distracting. These have been increasing in price and some quite damaged examples are currently on offer for far more than this piece.
Pyromorphite
stock #4.2-458.1
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
2.4x2.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $40


A very well formed and sharp cluster of hoppered crystals with good color. These are from the early 2001 finds and are simply great Pyromorphites at a super price.
Pyromorphite
stock #7 CNA-587
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
11.3 x 8.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $3750


A large, fine Pyromorphite from the 2000-2001 discoveries at Daoping, now recognized as one of the best finds in the world. The recent finds have not had the same color or stature of the best of the early materials which are now classics and richly priced when available. This pice is all pyromorphite, there is no matrix, the front is densely packed with radiating crystal clusters with individuals to just over 1 CM. Very close examination shows a few small spots with chipping on crystals, this is really minor and not seen in casual inspection but it keeps the price of this from being over 10K. Great display piece with a good 3 dimensional presentation.
