Description

Mounds of yellow/brown pyromorphite crystals that have been coated on one side with cemented debris that is very difficult to remove. I got to keep these because Bob was not going to put in the effort to try and clean them. I have tried but as can been seen in the photos not much progress. Still an  interesting specimen in my opinion.

Collected with Bob Hopper from the famous Jersey Vein at the Bunker Hill Mine.
