Rosenberg Mine, Bad Ems, Nassau, Germany
4.5x 3.2x 2.0cm
Along with the previous specimen, I consider this to be the second Holy Grail of pyromorphite-- A deep green specimen from Grube Rosenberg. This specimen has crystals to 1 cm, and boasts the best color from to come from the area--the most desirable deep green. These pieces came out during the 1800"s, and are almost impossible to find in any quality today (I"ve only seen 3, including this one, in the past few years). Specimens of this size are especially rare--and while not damage free (that"s why this thing doesn"t cost 4k), it is a rare piece from a bygone era.
