A fine, rich, old-time pyromorphite specimen from the Wheal Alfred of Cornwall. Lustrous, wet-look, partially gemmy, two-toned green, spindle-shaped prisms to 1.1 cm comprise the main 4.7 cm vug in the contrasting quartz matrix. This piece is so rich, even the contacted backside is richly covered with pyromorphite. This specimen almost certainly dates to the mid-to-late 1800s, when this mine was famous for some of the most beautiful pyromorphite in the world. Classic material and seldom available in this quality and richness. Ex. John Ydren Collection.
