PGM07 Plumbogummite ps. Pyromorphite
A super aesthetic miniuature specimen of pyromorphite, partially pseudomorphed to plumbogummite. Judging from what I've seen, this is a rare smaller example of the highly desirable large hopper crystals. The side-by-side arrangement of the crystals really makes this one a great example (certainly the best I've seen) in this size range.
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, 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. Part of the high price is probably because they were all small-cabinet and larger
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.
