2PGM03 Plumbogummite and Pyromorphite
Daoping-Yangshuo Orebody, Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang A.R., China
7.3x 6.4x 3.7 cm
$485

A beautiful specimen of pyromorphite WITH plumbogummite, rather than entirely coated/ psudomorphed by it.

Of all the pieces I have seen from this location, this one reminds me most of the classic 19th century examples from Caldbeck Fells in the United Kingdom.  Like those, these has the pleasing combination of both blue and green-- though there are a couple notable differences-- the pyromorphite is next to the plumbogummite (as opposed to being a selective overgrowth) and the blue color on this Chinese piece is better than the UK average.

Sawed on the back and around the edges.
