- Bunker Hill Mine, Yreka Mining Dist., Shoshone Co., Idaho, USA
- Miniature, 3.4 x 2.6 x 2.0 cm
- Ex. Bill & Anne Cook
This is a hefty, colorful Pyromorphite from the Bunker Hill Mine featuring orange-yellow crystals in combination with the more typical bright yellow-green variety, a unique classic find here from the 1980s. The orange found in these specimens is due to arsenic inclusions. Good aesthetic specimens of this style and miniature size in excellent condition are not at common, as most tend to form as part of larger plates and masses. Very minor damage seen here - only one broken crystal amidst the middle. This balanced miniature is super bright and very aesthetic with intense, orange color and neon green highlights.
