IJP21 Pyromorphite
Les Farges, Ussel, Correze, France
2.6x 2.4x 1.6 cm

A nice ball-shaped cluster of pyromorphite , with a tiny second generation of bright green crystals visible on the terminations of the first generation. I purchased this specimen from a French collector, who said that it came from a slightly older collection. The included label says "St. Prie" but I cannot find any other references to any such place. I *think* it is from Les Farges--the form, color, and age of the collection from which it came all point in that direction. There is one ding on the top left.
