Comment: Another of the old 1980’s specimens that is in great demand. I can remember one trip to Broken Hill
where there were only micros available to obtain. I would always carry trades with me to secure that special item that I wanted.Of course there were a lot more miners collecting minerals those days so that they could supplement their incomes. The mine owners put their collective feet down to stop the pilfering of valuable ore’s such as the above listed specimens, and the supply slowly stopped . There are always a few dedicated miners who know how to work the system so a supply still slowly trickled out.
This anglesite is a typical Broken Hill specimen it speaks for itself.
