Item Description

A very nice and aesthetic miniature from the famous mining district of Broken Hill, Australia featuring translucent whitish spheres and botryoids of Smithsonite to 1.2 cm across on a dark contrasting matrix of Bromian Chlorargyrite (and possibly some Coronadite as well). Bromian Chlorargyrite is a silver chloride-bromide and Coronadite is a lead-manganese oxide. These are accents to the amazing, translucent, sparkling clusters of smithsonite, which are of unusually good quality for this material.
