Galena Pseudo after Pyromorphite -Classic locale (Ref: 0241-JM-331A)

Wheal Hope, Perranzabuloe, St. Agnes District, Cornwall, England
28mm x 23mm x 15mm
minID: W08-DWR
Classic Cornish thumbnail specimen of the very desirable Galena after Pyromorphite crystals from Wheal Hope. Small but distinct crystals of Pyromorphite have full changed to Galena but the form remains. Ex John Marshall collection, obtained by him before 1970. These Pseudomorphs are only known from a few spots in the world and all seem to have been found over a century ago. These are especially uncommon from Cornwall, and while to many people are just black and ugly, they are a prize to those who understand these things!
