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.

Reliquia Mine, Huallance District, Dos de Mayo Province
Huanuco Department, Peru
7.8 x 7 CM (cabinet)

Good Spinel twins are rare from Peru, these are especially fine, very sharp and attractive. From John Marshall's worldwide Galena collection, this is a very distinctive and esthetic piece, he held it in high regard.
Galena with Sphalerite
stock #10.1-066
Mid Continent Mine, Baxter Springs
Kansas, United States
9.8 x 8.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $220


A nice, well composed galena from the Mid Continent mine. Good luster on crystals that reach 3 cm, displays very well and a nice addition to any suite of Galena or Tri-state classics. Sharp and excellent damage wise. Specimens like this have become scarce as the mines have been closed for several decades now.
