TID12 Cerussite
Level 9, Bunker Hill Mine, Shoshone Co., Idaho, United States
5.2x 4.0x 3.9 cm

A nice specimen of cerussite from the Bunker Hill Mine.  Before the famous pyromorphite finds, this mine produced some of the US's best examples of cerussite and anglesite-- this is a particualrly nice example.

This piece has good documentation-- it comes with an old collector label with a handwritten note on the back, attributing it to a 1981 purchase from Art Cooper, for $16.  At the time, Art Cooper was the predominant supplier of Bunker Hill specimens.  It also gives quite precise location information, citing the"090-23-21 Stope" as the source of the specimen.
