Nice specimens, especially the Wolf Mine rhodo and the beautiful pyromorphites! By the way, looking at its habit, the first specimen is most likely also from Friedrichssegen Mine ...

This land produced incredible specimens, not only in the Siegerland area.

Andesite Quarry, Kreimbach-Kaulbach, Lauterecken-Wolfstein, Kusel, Rhineland-Palatinate/Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany

 Locality:
Eisenkaute Mine, Lautzenbrücken, Bad Marienberg, Westerwaldkreis District, Rhineland-Palatinate/Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany

Rhodo Bindweide.jpg
 Mineral: Rhodochrosite
 Locality:
Bindweide Mine, Steinebach/Sieg, Altenkirchen (Westerwald), Siegerland, Rhineland-Palatinate/Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
 Dimensions: 10 x 7,5 cm
 Description:
The Bindweide rhodos have not the colour and the beauty of the specimens from Wolf or Louise mine. Since you just don't see them, they're even more sought-after by local collectors.

Sphalerit Mühlenbach.jpg
 Mineral: Sphalerite, Dolomite
 Locality:
Mühlenbach Mine, Arenberg, Koblenz, Rhineland-Palatinate/Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
 Dimensions: 7,5 x 6,5 cm
 Description:
Although Mühlenbach was one of the last producing German mines it's rather unknown. The mine was part of the Bad Ems district. Mineral specimens from there are very rare, they hold kind of a holy grail status among local collectors.
