RKL17 Pyromorphite

3.8x 3.3x 2.0 cm
$345

A pyromorphite specimen from the major find at Les Farges, which predated the current wave of Chinese pyromorphites by nearly 30 years. These remain highly sought after, though have become scarcer in the years since. This specimen can be displayed from any number of angles; unlike most specimens which have a clear front, back, top, or bottom, the "correct orientation" for this one is really a matter of personal preference. This particular specimen was in the collection of Gary Hansen, who assembled an (amazing) pyromorphite suite that was dispersed by Robert Lavinsky. This is one of those specimens. I acquired it in trade form Joseph Freilich.
