Formation: Pyromorphite is a rare lead phosphate mineral, and plumbogummite is the corresponding secondary mineral. At one time, these minerals were worth their weight in platinum! In 2013-2014, the small hand-worked mining in Daoping lead deposit yielded amazing yellow and powder blue crystals display pseudomorphing (replacement of an original mineral, with the original structure preserved by a secondary mineral).
Healing: Pyromorphite is associated with vigor, vitality, and personal strength. Plumbogummite is associated with luck, stress release, and increased focus and concentration.
