Sherman Mine (Sherman tunnel; Leadville Corporation Mine; Day Mines; Hilltop Mine), Upper Iowa Gulch, Leadville District, Lake Co., Colorado, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 3.3 x 2.0 cm
From one of the most classic Colorado localities, we have a great secondary ore association specimen. This piece features a few small, lustrous, sharp, gemmy orange Wulfenite crystals on beautifully contrasting blue green Rosasite matrix. I know its not what you typically expect from a Colorado specimen, but this material is exceptionally rare from this mine. This specimen is close to 30 years old as well. 5.5 x 3.3 x 2.0cm
