Millerite
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Agnew Mine, Western Australia (state), Australia   <br /><br />2 3/8" Across  <br /><br />A desirable trait of this piece is the brownish-green coating over the millerite. This is also a rare mineral.  Western Australian millerite has a reputation for chemical instability.  This piece has been stored in air at ambient temperature for at least five years but probably since the 1980's when it was mined.  Instability will never be an issue with this specimen unless maybe if it is stored in conditions that are particularly humid and at elevated temperature for a prolonged period of time.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was traded from Robert Lavinsky during a visit to his gallery in Dallas, Texas in March 2012.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
