Malachite Ps after Azurite
stock #18-AX-30-049
Flubspatgrube, Lichtenberg, Bad Stben, Franconian Forest, Franconia
Bavaria, Germany
5.9 x 3.3 x 2.7 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $800
Dec 2018

A fine old Pseudomorph with a very well formed main crystal 2.4 CM tall. From the collection of Thomas Fitzpatrick, this is in excellent condition. I have not seen any other of this quality, the separation and contrast with the matrix is superb. There are some smaller crystals on the matrix most with some damage or are fully broken but these are not very obvious. The matrix is largely a dark red to brown Gossan with a few small Goethite spheres. On the bottom of the matrix there seems to be a small zone of Pseudomalachite as well.
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
stock #A0180-JM-2174A
Tanzfleck, Friehung Grafenwohr, Upper Palatinate
Bavaria, Germany
4 x 2.4 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $450


A German classic, bright, gemmy pyro crystals cover the surface of the sandstone matrix. Ex John Marshall collection. Nice "wet look" example of this classic location, and much better than the usual micro druze. Not often available as this mine has been closed for over 60 years and this piece is likely far older than that.
