Embolite is an old-time synonym of bromian chlorargyrite. This is a superb specimen of this very rare silver species, with superb discrete crystals, from the classic and best locality of old Broken Hill. This piece is nearly solid bromian chlorargyrite, with a unique coral-like form. The dark olive-green crystals have excellent waxy luster. Ex. Richard Hauck Collection.
