RDN30 Pyromorphite
Seigoritani Adit, Kamioka mine, Hida City, Gifu Prefecture, Chubu Region, Honshu Island, Japan
2.8x 2.6x 2.0 cm

Another Japanese pyromorphite, this one from the Seigoritani Adit of the Kamioka mine.  I've seen a few pieces attributed to Kamioka in the past, but never one to this adit.

It is not a spectacular pyromorphite by any definition of the word, but as an ex-pyromorphite collector, I have to say these Japanese examples are incredibly hard to get, particularly as anything more than a small box full of loose crystals.

An interesting locality piece, for the pyromorphite collector.
