   Galena Pseudomorph after PyromorphiteSaint-Salvy Mine, Saint-Salvy-de-la-Balme, Tarn, Midi-Pyrenes, France3.7cm x 2.6cm x 2.3cmEx. Alain Martaud Collection       
Description/Interesting Notes: A rare, old time example of galena after pyromorphite from this classic French locale!!!  Examples of galena after pyromorphite are rare and highly sought after, with most specimens coming from one of two small 19th century finds, one in Cornwall and... one in Germany - however there were also a small number of specimens from France as well, and they are perhaps the rarest of all!!!  This specimen consists of a cluster of sharply defined, robust prismatic crystals of pyromorphite that have been completely replaced by galena!!!  The crystals exhibit sharp detail with a unique, slightly glittery appearance in appearance!!!  There are some missing crystals that, interestingly, show that they were partially hollow and host cluster of tiny, intergrown galena crystals at their core!!!  This is a particularly fine example of this very rare material!!!  This specimen is from the personal collection of Alain Martaud and retains its original personal collection label as well!!!  Don't miss out on this rare opportunity - these specimens are next to impossible to obtain!!!  The pics hardly do it justice!!!  Must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!!!Good luck and be sure to check out my other exciting mineral auctions on ebay!!!
