White Satin-Like Cerussite
White Satin-Like Cerussite from Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Shoshone Co., Idaho
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description This is a very attractive, sharp, and unusual Cerussite specimen from the Bunker Hill mine, famous for its Pyromorphites. These Cerussites are more prismatic than your normally see, and their luster is outstanding. The habit and geometry are somewhat reminiscent of the Flux Mine Cerussites (long and slender), but what sets this apart is the relative stoutness of the crystals and the amazing 'satin spar' internal reflections. The longest crystal is 2.4 cm long. For this habit, one of the best from Bunker Hill. Unusual form and great aesthetics.
Locality Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Shoshone Co., Idaho
Dimensions 3.8 x 3.8 x 2.0 cm.
Specimen Grade B
