Home > Lead Minerals – December 10 > MS1460 Pyromorphite


Pyromorphite is a lead phosphate chloride. Hausmann (1813) named the mineral by combining Greek roots pyr, fire, and morphe, form, since the mineral assumes a crystalline form when cooling off from a melt.

This is a single cavernous pyromorphite crystal, free of matrix. The color seems to grade from a green color at the center becoming first green-yellow and finally yellow-green towards the extremities. The top of the termination is almost brown.
