AVP-NF5Pyromorphite

San Andrés Mine, Espiel, Córdoba, Andalusia, Spain

Dimensions: 67 mm x 42 mm x 45 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 10 mm

Another pyromorphite from the same mine, this one presents hundreds of bright crystals seated on a face of the limonite matrix, with a curious contrast: there are 3 different colours! At right are yellow-greenish, centre are neon green and left green-blueish. The sizes are between 1mm and up to 1cm. They have hexagonal shapes and the rare acicular one. No visible tips.

Ex. Manuel de Torres Minerals.

5TJ-PK2Pyromorphite

San Andrés Mine, Espiel, Córdoba, Andalusia, Spain

Dimensions: 42 mm x 39 mm x 28 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 12 mm

Nice pyromorphite with the typical neon green colour from this well known spanish mine. The bright crystals rest in two vugs (the other one on the back) presenting the hexagonal shape and protecting them of hits. Nice piece, without appreciable blows on it and contrasting with the limonite matrix.
