In my opinion, these powder blue plumbogummite pseudomorphs of pyromorphite from the November, 2014 pocket are one of the major new finds of the last few years. They first appeared in the rooms of a handful of dealers in Tucson.  From substantial 5-figure prices for the ones with large hoppered crystals like this one, prices have now become quite affordable for a top-notch specimen. This piece features large crystals. The tops and outsides of the pyromorphite crystals has been altered to lacy patterns of pastel blue plumbogummite, partially preserving the original shapes of the very large, deeply hoppered, hexagonal pyromorphites. On the edges and base of the piece you can clearly see the yellow-green pyromorphite.  No damage.
