Pyromorphite
stock #0201-JM-3928
Little Giant Mine, Mullan, Coeur d' Arlene District, Shoshone County
Idaho, United States
9 x 7.1 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $770


A very fine specimen from another uncommon but significant US locality. From the Little Giant mine, at Mullen, Idaho a sizable and rich specimen densely covered on the front surface with pale green crystals. From John Marshals superb collection of world wide Pyromorphite his collection card reads "typical habit on Little Giant piece, about the best I have ever seen." The little Giant mine was an important locale for Pyro long before the Kellogg/ Bunker Hill Mine find put Idaho in the spotlight. The mine closed over 100 years ago and fine specimens are quite scarce. This one is just exceptional, in remarkable condition the crystals are the delicate "porcelain" luster and up to 7mm long. Very different look from the more available Bunker Hill material. Great addition for any serious Pyromorphite suite.
Ludlamite with Vivianite
stock #16.1-430-(CN1416)
Blackbird Mine, Lemhi County
Idaho, United States
6.3 x 4.3 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


The Blackbird mine was a small Cobalt operation that in the 1950-1960s occasionally produced well crystallized Ludlamites. Sometimes with Vivianites, these were by far best of the specie found in the US, and some can be compared to good Bolivian material. This is a good small cabinet with both species in well developed crystals. Very hard to find anything larger than a thumbnail now, this is an early 1960 vintage piece ex Charles Noll collection.
Ludlamite - fine crystals with minor Chalcopyrite
stock #10.1-328
Blackbird Mine, Lemhi County
Idaho, United States
8.4 x 5.6 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $600
Worldwide mix summer

A choice, very well crystallized plate of green Ludlamite crystals from the classic Blackbird mine. Several old labels (included) date this back to 1960, which was the period when the best Ludlamites in the US were found. The Ludlamites are deep green, sharp, translucent and in clusters, balls and rosettes. A choice US classic of the quality that is almost never seen on the market today. No damage and the matrix has been stabilized to prevent crumbling of the soft Sulfide base.
Cerussite with Anglesite and Linarite - US Classic locale
stock #18.1-241
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.1 x 2.7 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $125


From the famed Bunker Hill Mine, this is a choice small specimen of sharply crystallized Cerussite with a few small Anglesite prisms as well. Both twins and single crystals are noted. The matrix also includes some small bits of Linarite and what looks like Caledonite in spots on Cerussites. Choice cognac color and sharp form protected in a shallow vug. The condition in the vug is good, the only notable damage is outside the vug itself. Choice for the locale and an attractive Lead secondary from this famed Pyromorphite locality.
Pyromorphite- Arsenian type
stock #17.1-546
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
7.2 x 3.2 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
Pre Holiday 2017

An excellent Pyromorphite in fine condition from the now classic Bunker Hill mine. Excellent color with both bright yellow and orange zones. Two generations of crystals are present most with wet look luster. Sharp hexagonal barrel type crystals to nearly 2 CM are the first generation, some are hoppered but most have flat terminations. The last generation of sparkling micro crystals on top adds a nice touch. Better in person this can be displayed from almost any angle.

Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.6 x 2.9 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))

Pre Holiday 2017

Brilliant yellow to light orange lustrous crystals of Pyromorphite from the famed Bunker Hill Mine. These are uncommon colors for Pyromorphite and this piece is in excellent condition. Several good display angles and with minimal matrix, this is a really nice small miniature from a classic, closed mine.
Pyromorphite - Arsenian classic habit
stock #17.1-475
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
4 x 2.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $600
Pre Holiday 2017

This is the wet-look luster that is most desirable from Bunker Hill and the melted type form of the Hexagonal crystals. An esthetic arrangement with well defined three dimensional form. The color is the distinctive bright orange best known from this locale. An American classic.
Pyromorphite -multicolor Arsenian
stock #17.1-476
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.2 x 2.5 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575
Pre Holiday 2017

Brilliant wetlook luster and intense color with the melted style crystals make this an impressive piece. There was one significant pocket found decades ago that yielded this unusual habit and brilliant shine. Most of the display face is the rare deep orange red color but there is also bright yellow and green on the display face. The hexagons are distinct yet look to be coated with a melted surface of micro crystals. Striking.
