Broken Hill, Yancowinna Co., New South Wales, Australia
Small Cabinet, 9.3 x 6.3 x 5.7 cm
Iodargyrite is one of the relatively rare silver iodine halides for which the renowned Broken Hill deposit is justifiably famous. Waxy, translucent, olive-green to yellow-green, iodargyrite crystals in clusters or as isolated crystals richly and attractively cover the sculptural, vuggy, gossan matrix. This is overall a very rich, large, and unusually attractive specimen. Classic, older, combination material from this world-class locality - it probably dates to the early 1900s to 1940s era here.
