Hi everyone, I know that this sample of cerussite from Broken Hill is one of the most famous and is recognised as possibly the best for its kind in the world, however the location given here is not quite right. The sample came from the Proprietary Block 14 mine in the early days - circa 1900 - of the Broken Hill line of lode mines and was given by BHP to the museum.The open cut mines did not start until the mid 1980's meaning that the Block 14 "opencut" location is wrong. Here is a link to the museum page about this sample. Australian museum cerussite
Cheers Trev
