ID: CC12611
From North Mine at Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia, a real eye-catcher of botryoidal candy-pink Rhodochrosite interspersed with pale purple Amethyst crystals over a botryoidal matrix of Calcite, probably a form of Manganoan Calcite.  The Rhodochrosite forms hemispheres of between 7 and 10 mm, with the primary mound being 4 cm in diameter.  Delicate lilac-purple Amethystine Quartz crystals are developed to 1.5 cm wide between the Rhodochrosite crystals.  A colourful and very different specimen within the vast mineralogical suite from Broken Hill.
