Bromargyrite Ps. After Silver
Chanarcillo, Copiapo Province, Atacama Region, Chile
Miniature, 5.2 x 4.5 x 2.3 cm
Ex. Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences
Unusual "ropey" crystals of Bromargyrite nestled in a specimen that itself has not the shape of random matrix to it...all suggesting this is a solid piece of pure Bromargyrite pseudomorph after silver - quite in line with the locality, but an unusual occurrence nonetheless. From the collection of notable museum supporter William Sansom Vaux.
