RM1626   Pyromorphite on quartz and chalcopyrite

Rosenberg Mine, Braubach, Bad Ems, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

A classic pyromorphite specimen of excellent quality, rich in hexagonal prisms, very well defined, with the typical beige-brown color of the specimens of this German locality. Translucent to transparent. Matrix is formed by quartz crystals which makes the phosphate stand out in a very aesthetic way. It is accompanied by chalcopyrite. One reason to select this specimen from the Daunis collection is the old label of Juan Montal, a well-known Catalan mineral dealer from Vilafranca del Penedés (Barcelona), who was active in the middle of the s. XX until the 1980s. The piece is very good for the locality and the label full of history.

Size: 6.0 x 4.0 x 3.5 cm.
Main crystal: 5 x 2 mm.

Excol. Lluís Daunis & Maria Ruscalleda (Barcelona). Ex. Juan Montal (Vilafranca del Penedés).
