Pyromorphite Specimens

Interesting little Pyromorphite specimens from around the world.  They are lead based minerals, so careful handling is recommended.


Our current stock includes:

Specimens from Caldwell Fells, Cumbria, UK

These are typically collected from various old mines around the area and consist of a green Lead ore sitting on a white and yellow-orange Baryte matrix. The crystals range from globular to botryoidal and reniform and are often quite interesting to look at, although typically rather small - 1-2MM typically. I would recommend viewing them under magnification.

Reasonably large pieces for the price, although most of that is the matrix - the crystals may only occur in a small area of the total piece. Several of these pieces have 'pockets' of crystals around 10MM wide, and may have several pockets.


Large cabinet specimen (thought to be from Burgham Mine, Shropshire, UK)

  • #1 - 23x15x8CM - A very large 4KG specimen measuring approximately 23x15x8CM at its longest points. Not something you see come to the market too often; excellent quality and colours of baryte with a 'dusting' of green pyromorphite to one side.


Specimens from an unknown locale.

  • #2 - 23.25x20.6x9.6MM - a small thumbnail specimen, from an unknown location. It has some very nice crystals which look great under magnification.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information

How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.


How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.


How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.


I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.


What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
