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.
Pyromorphite

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))
price: $390
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.
Ludlamite (well crystallized, classic) with Siderite on Quartz
stock #17.1-479
Blackbird Mine, Lemhi County
Idaho, United States
4.4 x 4 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Pre Holiday 2017

Outstanding example of the specie from the old classic Idaho locale of Blackbird mine. These are considered to be the best specimens for the mineral and this one is especially choice. Sharp and gemmy crystals are well exposed and nicely perched on the contrasting matrix. No damage seen even under 20X magnification, the crystals reach up to 1.7 CM, and have fine luster. Micros of Siderite and another mineral are noted on a reddish druzy quartz matrix that sets off the green Ludlamites well.
Pyromorphite -well crystallized yellow
stock #17.1-477
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
5.2 x 3 x 2.7 (cabinet)
price: $700
Pre Holiday 2017

Bright and very well formed, sharp Pyro crystals in fine condition. The crystals are in free standing sprays on a drusy coated matrix. Very esthetic and lustrous, this is a relatively uncommon color for any Pyromorphite and a nice addition to any suite of the mineral.
