ID: CC14159
A very rich coverage of Alabandite over a light grey matrix containing disseminated sulphides.  From the Zinc Corporation mine at Broken Hill, NSW, Australia, the Alabandite forms strongly foliated sooty-black coatings with some areas becoming grassy-emerald-green.  The Alabandite also occurs with, more typical, glassy black crystalline faces and a bright lustre; with an appearance similar to biotite.  The foliation takes the form of acicular-like, narrow, flat-lying columns in both linear and gently curving patterns.  A very good and interesting specimen of the rare manganese sulphide, Alabandite, from Broken Hill, Australia.
