Salida, CO Elks Lodge Collection
The Elks Club in Salida, Colorado housed a display of several diverse mineral suites from Leadville, Bisbee, the Tri-State district and others, many with historic labels affixed to the specimens. The club decided to dispose of the collection, and we bought it this spring (2014).
Not a great hemimorphite compared to Mexico, but pretty good for Leadville. The nice spray of white crystals is nestled in a vug coated with sparkling drusy black crystals, possibly cryptomelane.
