Kutnohorite is another classic mineral from the Broken Hill suite and this very fine specimen is an excellent example.  Kutnohorite, a calcium manganese carbonate, forms plumose sprays typical of the species, with a broad fan of delicate powder-pink crystals emanating from a single narrow stem.  For its size the specimen is feather-light indicating the very porous nature of the crystallised plumes.  A choice example of this species from the Broken Hill mining district.
