El Horcajo Pyromorphite

During the last century a mine at El Horcajo, Ciudad Real, produced great Pyromorphite with a very large variety of forms. Specimens from the locality are very well represented in major European Museums. Unfortunately little of this material is available and it is very difficult to get hold of specimen from this mine. We obtained a few small specimens from an old Spanish collection and we are able to offer them :
