Galena Ps. Pyromorphite - classic (Ref: 13.1-412)

Kautenbach, Traben-Trarbach, Hunsruck, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
71mm x 62mm x 46mm
minID: WWK-R7C
One of the most respected European classics are the Pyromorphites that were pseudomorphed by Galena from Kautenbach. This specimen has very sharp and distinct hexagonal crystals that in some cases are fully pseudomorphed to Galena and a few have a later regrowth of an outer layer of Pyromorphite. The crystals are well exposed and stand up above the matrix. Very clean damage wise, the crystals on this specimen are small but much more distinct than usual from this classic locale. Ex Seaman museum, most specimens of this sort we have handled had larger crystals but also far larger price tags, usually in the 4-8K range. This is a good example of this treasured classic that is affordable but still choice.
