ID: CC19226
An aesthetic and delightful miniature of buttermilk-cream Calcite forming bow-tie sprays to 3.7 cm perched on a drusy bed of salmon orange-pink Rhodochrosite crystals. Adding to this aesthetic combination is a small cluster of glassy, slightly milky Quartz crystals. This large miniature will certainly provide a splash of colour amongst the metallic minerals from Cavnic mine in Maramureș County, Romania. The specimen has a striking crisp and bright look and when turned over, the hidden matrix is that of bright candy-pink massive Rhodochrosite. A diagram on the reverse side of the accompanying label suggests the salmon coloured crystals could be Kutnohorite, but this requires confirmation.
