Pyromorphite
Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur dAlene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
4.8 x 3.7 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $720


A wet-look Pyromorphite from Bunker Hill with light orange to straw color crystals. Ex Rosewarne Collection, this has crystals up to 1.8 CM most having the slightly "melted" look on some edges and faces. In fine condition overall, the crystals are quite translucent and when backlit they glow yellow . Bunker Hill is now recognized as one of the worlds greatest sources of Pyromorphites and the range of color was especially significant. Orange color Pyromorphite is rare worldwide but Bunker Hill did produce many impressive pieces, reputedly due to higher levels of Arsenic but that seems to be in dispute. No matter why these are wonderful Pyros, modern classics and there are no more coming out.
