Small Cabinet, 8.3 x 5.1 x 2.5 cm
11 level orebody, Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Shoshone Co., Idaho, USA
SOLD

This historic specimen is from the 11 level of the Bunker Hill, which had long ago been mined out by the early 1900s but was still accessible to collectors who knew their way around when this mine itself was accessible (now, it is a Superfund toxic waste site, sadly). A local collector went in and found this, he related, in the 1960s. It is one of the most important, most robust anglesite clusters I am familiar with seeing from this location. It is also displayable, pristine, and in its own blocky way is kind of pretty.
