IJP29 Pyromorphite
Chenelette, Beaujeau, Rhone-Alpes, France
6.3x 4.2x 4.0 cm

When most people think of French pyromorphite, Les Farges immediately comes to mind. The truth is though, France has a number of other good pyromorphite localities, including the little know deposit at Beaujeau. Here is a very aesthetic specimen of bright green pyromorphite from area, that that also produced some spectacular wulfenite/barite combinations. It was collected in 1999, prior to the mine"s closing in 2002. I had the good fortune of coming into contact with a very generous French collector with whom I exchanged several specimens from Pakistan in return for a suite of French minerals, of which these pyromorphites were a part.
