Little Giant Mine, Mullan, Coeur d' Arlene District, Shoshone County, Idaho, United States
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.
