Description

    AMERICAN MINERAL CLASSIC: PYROMORPHITE
    Bunker Hill Mine, Bunker Hill Properties, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shoshone Co., Idaho, USA
    This large and showy Pyromorphite from the famous Bunker Hill Mine find of 1981-1996 was one of the featured specimens in the American Mineral Treasures exhibit shown at the February 2008 Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. It displays the lovely and unique yellow-green hue that made these specimens so desirable among collectors. The lustrous, barrel shaped crystals cover virtually all surfaces of this very large cabinet specimen. The largest prisms are 3/8 of an inch in diameter and ½ of an inch in length. This premier specimen has resided in the collections of Wayne Sorensen, the dealer who first brought the specimens to market, and Dr. Ed David; Science and Technology advisor to President Nixon. It measures 6 ½ x 5 ¼ x 4 ½ inches thick and is in excellent condition.
    Provenance: American Mineral Treasures Case, Tucson, Arizona, February 2008
    Ex Wayne Sorensen Collection
    Ex Ed David Collection
