Pyromorphite var. Arsenian
Miniature, 5.4 x 3.7 x 2.6 cm
Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Idaho
Slightly hoppered, short prismatic, orange-colored crystals of pyromorphite form a beautiful hedgehog like growth here. The color is due to minute traces of arsenic and characteristic of the mid 1990's crystals recovered here. They are all fairly even in size, 1 to 1.3 cm across, and present very dramatically for a piece of this style and size!
