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.
