SOLD Pyromorphite (two colors) with minor wulfenite
Sherman Mine, Burke, Coeurd'Alene District, Shoshone Co.
Idaho, United States
5 x 4.1 CM (miniature)
price: $380


From the John Marshall collection of Pyromorphites, an important locality piece that is also just a good looking specimen. The Sherman Mine was a significant location in the late 1950- 60s that occasionally produced some nice green Pyromorphite. This unusual specimen has yellow-orange and green crystals to 1.5 CM and micros of wulfenite as a bonus. Found many years before the discoveries at Bunker Hill, this rare piece is different from most specimens found in the region, and unique for this mine. Very good condition, looks perfect by naked eye, but 10X magnification reveals damage that is not otherwise noticed.
