Broken Hill, Yancowinna Co., New South Wales, Australia
Small Cabinet, 5.8 x 4.2 x 2.3 cm
A rich and showy specimen of the very rare silver species, iodargyrite, from the classic and best locality of old Broken Hill. The discrete, lustrous, light yellow iodargyrite crystals are scattered on both sides of the gossan matrix and is the rarest of the group of related silver chlorides from Broken Hill. These were mined in the 1940s mostly (with perhaps a trickle coming out later in the 60's). Accompanied by an old John Albanese label, a prominent East Coast dealer, dating from 1953-1968. Ex. George Elling Collection.
