A yellow to yellow-green pyromorphite crystal group, with a roughly hemispherical cap. The incomplete bottom side reveals an obvious radial group. Rather minor, bluish plumbogummite is present. Everywhere but the cap shows a yellowish fluorescence under shortwave UV. Although the Yangshuo Mine was made famous a few years ago for its plumbogummite replacing pyromorphite specimens, this example does not have enough plumbogummite to be called anything other than the very beginnings of a replacement.
