Item Description

Juicy and lustrous, tapered intergrown columns of yellow-green pyromorphite prisms form a very sculptural and artistic 360-degree miniature from the 1990s finds at the famed Bunker Hill Mine. The impressive large tapered and hoppered prism on one edge is a large 2.7 cm long. Partial oxide coatings on the piece add character. Ex Richard Rossi Collection. Richard is a Senior Fellow of the Mineralogical Record. This very fine and unusual looking miniature with a large crystal has multiple fine display views.
