RM373   Pyromorphite

El Borracho Viejo mine, Garlitos, Badajoz, Extremadura, Spain

A very rich pyromorphite druse formed by several hexagonal shape crystals. Some of them show parallel growths and fibrous like forms. With a marked color zoning that varies between grass green in the center to beige-green on terminal pinacoid. These specimens have been determined by isotopic studies with equal results to those of this mine. This excellent sample is from an old German mineral collection.
