ID: CC20169
A sublime Marshite specimen, one of the essential Broken Hill classics, but very rarely obtainable with such a rich profusion of crystals.  The Marshite crystals are scattered over the top surface of a gossan matrix of mixed country rock, Cerussite and Malachite with a sooty black manganese oxide and orange-buff limonitic coating.  The Marshite, a copper iodide (CuI), is a pinkish-carmine-red and areas where crystals have become intergrown can measure up to 1 cm across.  The species was named for C.W. Marsh who first described it and is from its type area of Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia.  A wonderful specimen that would grace any Broken Hill collection.
