Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Shoshone Co., Idaho, USA
Miniature, 3.8 x 3.8 x 2.0 cm
Ex. Dr. Art Soregaroli

This is a very attractive, sharp, and unusual Cerussite specimen from the Bunker Hill mine, famous for its Pyromorphites (among the best in the world). These Cerussites are more prismatic than your normally see, and their luster is outstanding. The habit and geometry are somewhat reminiscent of the Flux Mine Cerussites (long and slender), but what sets this apart is the relative stoutness of the crystals and the amazing 'satin spar' internal reflections. The longest crystal is 2.4 cm long. For this habit, one of the best I have seen from Bunker Hill. Unusual form and great aesthetics.
