San Luis Mine, San Jose, Chihuahua, Mexico
4.8x 1.75x 1.7 cm
A rich and brightly colored pyromorphite specimen from the San Luis Mine. These specimens date to the 1970's, and are considered to be the best (undisputed) Mexican pyromorphite examples. I say "undisputed" because there are a number of examples from Mina Ojuela, but nobody can ever definitively say whether they are mimetite or pyromorphite... and either way, they lack the color of these pieces.
