A member of the Apatite group of isomorphous hexagonal minerals. It is very similar in structure and appearance to Mimetite, and may be partially replaced by it. They were not distinguished as separate minerals until 1832, and the name Mimetite means “imitator”. It is composed of lead chlorophosphate, but is stable, and safe to handle. Some rare Pyromorphite may be radioactive, so a test using a Geiger counter is recommended. Crystals are hexagonal and terminated by basal planes. Globular and reniform masses are also found. It is usually a lime green color, but can also be found in colorless, white, yellow, orange or brown.

Associated with the solar plexus & heart chakras, zodiac signs of Sagittarius, Aries & Leo & vibrates to the number 7.
