RM2402   Pyromorphite

San Andrés mine, Espiel, Córdoba, Andalucía, Spain

Pyromorphite specimens from the San Andrés mine in Espiel, Córdoba, have been known since the first half of the 20th century. At the beginning of the 80s of this past century several quality specimens were recovered from the mine. This specimen, due to the date on the label of the J. Astor collection (Barcelona), can be dated to this period. The specimen shows several pyromorphite crystals, of good size, brilliant, translucent, thick and with shapes of the hexagonal barrel shaped prism, with the characteristic color between green to yellowish-green. They fill a vug in the goethite matrix. A Spanish classic.

Size: 6 x 3.6 x 3.6 cm.
Main crystal: 0.7 cm.
Found in ca. 1983.
