Chlorargyrite (Var: Bromian Chlorargyrite)
Chanarcillo, Copiapo Province, Atacama Region, Chile
Miniature, 5.0 x 4.7 x 1.0 cm
An incredible, old-time specimen from Chanarcillo of a solid sheet of waxy luster, yellow-green, bromian chlorargyrite microcrystals on a thin, platy matrix crust. Embolite is an old-time synonym for bromian chlorargyrite. Extremely rich and seldom available material in this quality from this classic locale. Much more rare from here than from Australia, where most specimens once came from. Ex. Drs. Jean Behier and Eric Asseborn Collections.
