PYROMORPHITE Bunker Hill Mine Kellogg, Couer d'Alene District Shoshone Co., Idaho USA
4.7 x 3.3 x 1.1 Inches 12 x 8.5 x 3 Centimeters
A stunning example of pyromorphite featuring a gradient of lustrous green, yellow, orange and brown crystals bubbling up across the specimen. The layered matrix promoted interesting crystal growth on the ridges and in the nooks. If you collect American mineral classics or pieces with unique aesthetics this is a perfect piece for your collection.
A secondary lead mineral found in the oxidised zones of lead deposits. Typically found as green, yellowish, brownish, greyish or white barrel-shaped hexagonal prisms, in clusters or as druses on matrix. The individual crystals are often modified or etched, giving a hopper-like appearance. This lead chloride phosphate forms a complete series with mimetite (lead chloride arsenate), and many specimens are intermediates between the two end-members.
