Cabinet, 10.3 x 4.6 x 3.5 cm
Sherman Mine (Leary Mine), Burke, Coeur d'Alene District, Shoshone Co., Idaho, USA
A fine, very rich cabinet pyromorphite specimen from the much less well-known and prolific Sherman Mine of Idaho, near the Bunker Hill Mine. Bundles of lustrous, olive-green to ochre-colored, hoppered, spindle-like prisms to 8 mm cover the sturdy, 3-dimensional, gossan matrix on this specimen. This piece probably dates to the 1960s and is from the John Ydren Collection.
