Wulfenite loves… Pyromorphite

Considering its amazing range of shapes and colours, pyromorphite should be considered as one of the most appreciated minerals by collectors and mineral lovers worldwide. This pyromorphite specimen was collected about 100 years ago in the locality of El Horcajo mine (Spain) and is part of the mineralogy collection of the Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona (Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona) with the register number 4358. It is a superb specimen, considering its significant size, the strong apple-green colour and, especially, the well-defined hexagonal prismatic crystals; those are not common in the specimens from this classic locality.
