This pretty specimen both presents well, and has a perfect pyromorphite green color (a lime green, lightened with a yellow tint). Some of the pyromorphite is more yellow-green, but green is dominant. The crystals are well-formed and barrel shaped, with the ends somewhat larger than the base on each crystal. There is very little of a branching habit, as most of the crystals appear to radiate from the host rock. Only a couple of the crystals show any damage, and these do not significantly detract from the specimen.
