Embolite (Now Chlorargyrite) From 1902
Silver King Mine, San Bernardino Co., California, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 5.0 x 3.3 cm
Ex. Richard Hauck
This, silver chloride, is a rare mineral species from places like Broken Hill, NSW, Australia. From the USA and in particular, California, it is rarer still. I have only ever seen a few out there for sale. This nodule has on one surface a sparkling druse of light brown to cocoa colored microcrystals. Discovered in 1902 and an important historical and locality specimen!
