Iodargyrite With Malachite
Horseshoe, near Peak Hill, Western Australia, Australia
Toenail, 3.0 x 2.3 x 1.8 cm
Small but sharp iodargyrite crystals, perched on contrasting malachite from this unusual locale! New material, collected recently and sold to an Australian dealer (Rob Sielecki) in 2010. This was one of the richer and more aesthetic of the handful of specimens I saw when visiting Rob in Australia in early 2010 after the find was made. Joe Budd photos
