DDM02 Pyromorphite on Barite
Les Farges, Ussel, Correze, France
24.0x 16.0x 6.5 cm

A very large cabinet specimen of pyromorphite, from the 1970's finds at Les Farges.  Today the market is awash with examples from China, but up until the mid-80's the choices for a fine pyromorphite would have basically been France or Germany.... 

There is some damage to this piece-- the bottom right image shows this best-- of course with such a large piece, it is nearly impossible to avoid damage entirely.  All the same, it is in quite good condition considering the size and age.
