A perfect, undamaged small Pyromorphite with a pleasing form from the classic Bad Ems area. A thin plate of matrix crystalized all around with mustard green pyros some of which have a yellow tip. This region is world renowned for the many fine Pyromorphites that it once produced, especially the large brown hoppered crystals. This old piece is of a less common style and color. Remarkable to be 360 degree displayable and completely damage free. One face of the specimen has less green and more typical brown but even that side displays well too. The Rosenburg Mine closed in 1963, and it was most active in the late 19th and early 20th century. Specimens of this quality are usually quite old and have passed through many hands, making it rare to be so pristine.
