Pyromorphite from the Bunker Hill mine in Kellogg, Idaho has long been recognized as some of the world's best. This specimen was mined by mine owner Bob Hopper and is an excellent pyromorphite for the locality, featuring prismatic crystals which have an overgrowth of highly lustrous orange Arsenian Pyromorphite. I think specimens like this one have a "dipped" appearance, and they are among my favorites for the locality. The major finds at Bunker Hill were in the early 1980's and good undamaged specimens like this are now quite hard to come by.
