Leadhillite Mammoth-St Anthony Mine, St. Anthony Deposit, Tiger, Mammoth

Om föremålet

, , It is rumored that a powder box, left by miners just before the mine closed, contained choice Leadhillite specimens that they fully intended to return for. This legendary and elusive 'treasure chest' supposedly still resides on the 300-foot level of the Mammoth-St. Anthony Mine. Several expeditions via previously accessible portions of the workings attempted to reach the area, but were foiled by collapsing sections of the mine that became increasingly dangerous and unstable as the target area was approached. They never made it to the 300-level. If this legendary box truly was left there for later retrieval, then it contains a small fortune in Leadhillite. Meanwhile the incredibly few examples that managed to survive the passage of time generate intense interest, if not outright lust, from sophisticated collectors. It has a custom acrylic stand.Ex.
