The unusual combination of large glassy Rhodonite crystals embedded in Galena is unique to the mines at Broken Hill in Australia.  Yes, these two minerals do occur together in Sweden and the USA, but not as specimens of even remote comparison to this material we know and love so well.  Several blocky, translucent burgundy red Rhodonite crystals up to 1.2 cm long are embedded in and protrude from a massive crystalline matrix of cleaved metallic silver Galena.  A lovey example.
