Super lustrous and super robust Pyromorphite cluster from the famed Bunker Hill Mine in Idaho, from classic finds of the 1980s. The color is rare - due to Arsenic contribution. This deep orange Pyromorphite grouping has an almost bubbly amorphous surface as a later stage coating on earlier formed, 3-dimensional, Pyromorphite crystals whose form is still discernible although the rounded surface layer gives them a rounded form. It sits well on its own and is in great condition with only one small, inconspicuous bruise - otherwise complete all around. Ex. Mervyn Ford collection with label. Ford was a well-known aesthetics miniatures collector.
