Broken Hill Update – July 2015
Posted by: Raymond McDougall on 07.03.2015 | Filed under: Latest, Recent Mineral Updates

In this Broken Hill Update (click here) I’ve added a small group of fine specimens from the classic locality, Broken Hill, Australia. Today the best sources for classic specimens from Broken Hill are old collections – these are from the collection of Milton Lavers, who was a well-known collector from Broken Hill.
