Pyromorphite is a mineral species composed of lead chlorophosphate with the chemical formula Pb5(PO4)3Cl. It sometimes occurs in sufficient abundance to be mined as a lead ore. It forms small, hexagonal crystals ranging from dark green to yellow and orange.

The lead in pyromorphite can be harmful if absorbed into the bloodstream by inhalation or ingestion. The crystals won't pose a health hazard just sitting on a shelf, but we recommend washing your hands after handling.
