description: <p style="text-align: justify;">3" across <br /><br />LOCALITY: Bunker Hill Mine, near Kellogg, Idaho, United States </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Orange pyromorphite is rarer than green and yellow pyromorphite at the Bunker Hill Mine.  The orange pyromorphite specimens are in fact arsenian pyromorphite.  They have a high arsenic content.  Orange pyromorphite was found in a single pocket find at the Bunker Hill mine during the 1980's.  Bunker Hill was mined for silver, lead and zinc.  In its heyday, it was America's biggest lead producer.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was formerly in the collections of Dr Brian England of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia and Edith Oaks of Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.  I bought this piece from Tony Tynan during a visit to his home in Port MacQuarie, New South Wales in late 2014.  It was traded out to Ian Bruce when he visited me in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 4th December 2015. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Matthew Webb collection and photo </p>
