That last picture of the pyromorphite from Les Farges is stunning, both in the quality of the specimen and the photograph.

I would have said Les Farges too, but not in my collection sadly (I can't afford the really good ones).

Superb samples, Jordi and Les! :-)
__________
Additional information:

I changed the name of the topic from "Favourite Pyromorphite localities" to "Favourite Pyromorphites". So everyone can feel free not only to discuss his/her favourite localities but also which colours and forms of that mineral he/she likes the most, e.g. elongated or thick crystals, dark or bright green or yellow or brown or orange, lustrous or not etc. ...
