Very nice color!

Yes, i like this small German classic, the colour is fine! Here's another picture that i took (picture above was from the previous owner). This pyromorphite has an interesting habit (i fear the picture does not show this): It seems as if there are two generations of pyromorphite. There's a layer of dark botryoidal pyromorphite on the matrix, and upon this brighter pyromorphite has grown in small terminated crystals ...

New specimen, mimetite from Germany. A quite large and impressive specimen from the famous mimetite locality near Badenweiler in Black Forest. Most mimetites from that area have a pale yellow colour, this one shows a vivid orange colour.

What looks like damage in the clear part of the crystal is no damage but a kind of inclusion inside.
