Pyromorphite - Classic locale
Red Gill Mine, Roughton Gill, Caldbeck Fells
3.3 x 3.1 x 2.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
Late Summer 2018
An extraordinary specimen for this locale. A super three dimensional very old Red Gill specimen, Ex. Ecole des Mines (Paris), Phil Scalisi and John Marshall collections. The crystals are free standing up to 1.6 CM and very lustrous. Older labels and collection card are included. Red Gill is famed for its Linarites and Caledonites, but its Pyromorphites are very rare, often with much smaller crystals. I have not seen a better Pyro specimen from this mine.
