Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 5.4 x 4.1 cm
Sherman Mine (Leary Mine), Burke, Coeur d'Alene District, Shoshone Co., Idaho, USA
This locality is not far from the famous Bunker Hill Mine which has produced so many world class pyros. It is distinct, however, and specimens from the Sherman mine are extremely uncommon. They tend to be small, pale crystals as crusts. This is quite simply the most exciting piece of the material from here I have seen, with a fairly vibrant grass green color, medium luster, and pyromorphite crystals to 1 cm in length that are very lustrous. I really like the 3-D sculptural effect of the specimen, which conveys well in the photos. (a bit more mustard-light green in person, though) 7.2 x 5.4 x 4.1 cm
