AKS5 Pyromorphite
Friedrichsegen Mine, Bad Ems, Nassau, Germany
8.4x 5.7x 5.9 cm             

A classic, light brown pyromorphite from the Freidrichsegen Mine, that closed is the first half of the 20th century. Pyromorphites from Bad Ems among the most sought after in the world, and given their age, they are many times harder to obtain than the modern Chinese pieces, or even the Les Farges or Bunker Hill pieces that were recovered in the 70"s and 80"s.

This specimen appears to be a nearly solid mass of crystals, growing in various directions.
