A very rich specimen of dense black lustrous uncommon mineral Bannisterite. The Broken Hill Orebody is the only location that gave up substantial specimens of Bannisterite. The specimens came with the Milton Lavers Collection, there were very few Bannisterite examples in the collection. The specimen we have displays the characteristic platy crystal sections and cleavages, measuring to 7.5cm, associated with embedded crystals of pink-red Rhodonite. At one side of the specimen is a prismatic translucent white Quartz crystal protruding out, partly coated by Pyrite. On a matrix of Rhodonite and Galena, a rich Bannisterite from the Zinc Corporation Mine.
