For those who were able to make it to Tucson this year, it was a real treat to see Wayne Sorensen's Bunker Hill Mine pyromorphites in person. Here are a few examples from my collection that show the diversity of pyromorphite from one of Idaho's best known locations.

A little fun with this state for me. All minerals from Centerville, Sawthooth Mtns, Bosie Co., Idaho. All Collected by Geary Murdock in the mid 1980s, and have only been in at most two collections since he mined them.

I know this State because of its zeolites from Little Salmon River. Here you have my humble contribution.
