Boulangerite on Rhodochrosite and Quartz

ID: CC3764

Bright metallic grey inter grown crystals of Boulangerite are abundantly developed over Quartz and Rhodochrosite. The Quartz is a druse of translucent white prismatic crystals measuring to 4m. Formed on the Quartz are light pink hollow tube crystals of Rhodochrosite with crystal surface (possibly after previous Calcite crystals). The matrix is a mixture of Quartz with Rhodochrosite. An uncommon specimen from the mine, particularly the Epimorphs of Rhodochrosite.
