PGM06 Plumbogummite ps. Pyromorphite
A small cabinet sized specimen of pyromorphite, partially pseudomorphed to plumbogummite. Judging from what I've seen, this is a rare example of a smaller, less jumbled cluster of the highly desirable large hopper crystals. There are a couple broken crystals near the base, but it displays as shown.
In my opinion, these have been the major find of the last several months, first appearing as a few "back of the room" specimens at Denver 2014, with more subsequently available from 2-3 dealers in Tucson. While the smaller crystals were available at moderate prices, the examples of large hopper crystals were relegated to the $4,500-15,000 range, even with the (significant) damage that virtually all of these seem to have.
As with most Chinese finds, the best come out at the beginning, and I consider pieces like this-- with the largest hoppered crystals-- to be in that category.
