SPESSARTINE GARNET LOLLINGITE/ARSNOPYRITE GALENA QUARTZ – BROKEN HILL – SOLD

For sale is a specimen of garnet with lollingite/arsnopyrite, quartz and galena, from Broken Hill, NSW. First I have to say this specimen is way way nicer than the pics show. This is a pretty interesting specimen, besides the fine display of spessartine garnet, there is associated lollingite/arsnopyrite, the very bright silver material. I have seen this association once before, but did not know what the silver mineral was, so I decided to get an XRD done of it. The results were a integrated mix of arsnopyrite and lollingite.
