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).

Leadville produced massive amounts of cerussite, and lots of specimens of various habits got saved. This coarsely crystalline “jackstraw” specimen has some light iron staining and a few spots of a botryoidal black mineral that could be hydrohetaerolite.
