Chlorargyrite (Var: Bromian Chlorargyrite)
Broken Hill, Yancowinna Co., New South Wales, Australia
Miniature, 4.6 x 3.1 x 2.9 cm
An OUTSTANDING, old-time specimen of discrete, isolated and lustrous, olive-green bromian chlorargyrite crystals richly lining a vug in contrasting gossan matrix from the famous Broken Hill Mine of Australia. This is a rare member of the group of related silver chlorides from Broken Hill, and hard to obtain today in good crystals. This one is especially fine. Ex. George Elling Collection.
