MCB28 Plumbogummite ps. Pyromorphite
Gongcheng Area, Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang A.R., China
7.6x 5.7x 2.4 cm
$385

From a recent find near Gongcheng.  These have been coming out intermittently for about 10 years, with numerous different habits discovered during that time. My favorites are actually not the big crystals that came out initially—due to their etching. I prefer the smaller ones with sharper crystals and good blue color.  I purchased a large lot of this material shortly after it came down from the mountain, I picked a few that I particularly liked from one reason or another— good composition, sharp crystals, good blue color.

This one is particularly sculptural, the matrix has been trimmed in a way that leaves a couple holes in the matrix and allow light to pass through, I think it takes for a rather beautiful display. As with the others I am posting, this one also has sharp blue crystals (not the more often encountered etched type) with some areas still being primarily pyromorphite-- I find the contrast between the blue and green quite beautiful.
