Chinese Pyromorphite Specimens For Sale

 

     

                                                                                                                      All the specimens seen above are Pyromorphite

 

The pyromorphites of China will be soon replacing all others as the frontrunners for the best of species.  I have no doubt that the finest of these pyros are superior to the wonderful finds from France, Spain...even Idaho.  They are spectacular in form and their colors are simply scrumptious.  Large crystals can even be translucent.  These are becoming very scarce and extremely expensive in larger sizes.  It won't be long and even the thumbnail sized pieces will be difficult to get.  They didn't last long but are destine to become modern day classics for this mineral species.

OKL-601

Back

OKL-601     Pyromorphite     Gongheng Co., Guangxi Zuang, China.  A modern day classic and what I believe will soon be recognized as the finest for the species, these pyros are becoming scarce and expensive in good quality examples like this one.  It isn’t huge measuring in at 3.9 x 3.4 x 2.4 cm but the quality is excellent.  The apple green crystals are the desired translucent variety and measure to approximately.5 cm each.  There is breakage to a couple crystals on the very edge of the specimen as might be expected, otherwise the piece is a damage free floater.  The matrix is crystallized and barren dolomite with what appear to be dolomite cases or possibly siderite.  Very aesthetic.   $250
