10025 Pyromorphite, Kaolinite, Orlando Mine, Tennant Creek, Tennant Inlier, Northern Territory

From Greg Dainty: Specimen collected by Norman Robinson in the early 1980s, and as far as I know are the only pyromorphite ever found at this locality. The contrasting white and grey minerals on the piece is kaolin (analysis by South Australian Museum) not sure what the black is but probably goethite. Rare, undamaged, good colour and lustre. 41x31x21mm.
