Mineral Specimen #5029    Plumbogummite Pseduomorph after Pyromorphite

Yangshuo Mine, Yangshuo Co., Guilin Pref., Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China

PbAl3(PO4)(PO3OH)(OH)6

Powder blue colored Plumbogummite has partially replaced lime green colored Pyromorphite. The Plumbogummite has a very interesting skeletal structure. Many of the crystals retain a core of Pyromorphite. A rhombic crystal of white Calcite is also attached. The Plumbogummite fluoresces bright green under SW UV and less so under LW (the photos were done under SW).

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: The Plumbogummite is missing in places revealing the Pyromorphite core; most of this is not damage but natural.

7.1 x 6.4 x 5.8 cm
