JC8636. Pyromorphite.  Little Giant mine, nr. Mullan, Coeur d'Alene district, Shoshone county, Idaho.  3.5 x 4.7 cm  31g.  $15.00     I collected the Little Giant in 1970, and sold most of the specimens collected.  At that time pyromorphite was very abundant in the mine, and it was obvious it had not been heavily collected.   Later, commercial collectors pretty much cleaned the place out of decent specimens.  This is one of the pieces from the 1970 effort.    Somewhat grayish green crystals on a hard metamorphic rock.   Typical of the material available at that time.  This one ended up in the University of Arizona collection #16173.
