ID: CC13159
An excellent example of pink Alstonite from the Brownley Hill mine, Nenthead, Alston Moor, Cumbria, England, collected by Dr David Green in 1991.  Brownley Hill mine is the co-type locality of Alstonite, a rare barium carbonate and forms tiny but well developed scalenohedral crystals to about 5 mm tall, richly covering the specimen.  Probably 90% of these crystals are pale light coral pink, yet despite their subtly of colour, are actually a strong pink for this type of Alstonite.
