Daoping Mine, Gongcheng Co., Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
Just why there are a bunch of curved Pyromorphite crystals doing "the wave" in the middle of a normal grouping is beyond our ken and will probably stay that way. An explanation is not required to appreciate the curious forms presented. Yellow-green crystals abound on the specimen; some would measure almost 0.8 inch (2 cm) in length, if straightened, and all show brightly lustrous faces. This particular type of crystal habit is rarely seen, particularly in large examples - which explains why this specimen had to be pried out of a Chinese dealer's personal collection. It is in excellent condition with only a few breaks around the perimeter. There is a custom base accompanying this piece.
