PGM01 Plumbogummite ps. Pyromorphite
A cabinet sized specimen of plumbogummite after pyromorphite. This piece is an aesthetic cluster, with crystals on both sides (including a number of hoppers) pseudomorphed to a light blue green. There are a few broken crystals, but as they are pseudomorphed all the way through they don't stand out (i.e., if they were not completely pseudo-ed you would see a contrasting green core.) Still, by the standards of the find this one is in very good condition
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 inTucson. While the smaller crystals were available at moderate prices, the 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.
