- Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Shoshone Co., Idaho, USA
- Cabinet, 9.8 x 5.7 x 4.0 cm
A juicy, wet-looking specimen with intense yellow-orange color. This piece is 3-dimensional and complete all around! It has the top luster you could wish for, in an Idaho pyromorphite. The wet, sparkling look is much better than the norm, as well. The color is characteristic of the early 1990s production here, at this mine that is now not only closed and defunct, but a toxic Superfund site as well. This is from the collection of Bob Hopper, recently deceased, who was the owner of the mine and maintained a small personal collection representing pieces of different style from the finds of the 1980s and early to mid 1990s.
