Ex. Leslie Truscott, Quarry Engineer at Dean Quarry, Cornwall

A jumbled mass of bright gcolored Pyromorphite crystals which in places are colored a reddish brown. In most places, the reddish brown color appears to be on the surface and likely iron staining; however, many of the smaller crystals, which have this color, do have a high luster indicating for those crystals, the reddish color is within the crystals. These small crystals have quite a high luster and have a different habit than the larger crystals being much thinner in portion to their length.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: Some of the crystals are chipped or incomplete.
