Featured on the cover of the Australian Journal of Mineralogy Volume 21 Number 1, 2020.

If you were to ask my granddaughter Gracie what my favourite colour is, she would tell you blue! And what can be more blue than a Broken Hill linarite. This specimen has sprays of intense blue linarite sitting on cerussite. Can you see the reflections of the linarite in the face of the cerussite?
