There is lots happening on this showy and well-priced Rhodochrosite with Wavellite on Quartz from Cavnic mine. Situated in the Cavnic mining district, this is the most famous of all the near-by mines and is situated a little to the north east of the town of Cavnic in Maramureș County, Romania. Cavnic mine is type locality to Rhodochrosite, which forms the matrix of this aesthetic specimen. The delicate coral pink massive Rhodochrosite matrix is encrusted with sugary, coral pink micro-crystals of lustrous Rhodochrosite, three-quarters overgrown by sucrosic micro-Quartz crystals and larger Quartz crystals of up to 1 cm tall. Perched on top and towards one end are two spherical clusters of buttermilk creamy white Wavellite, an aluminium basic phosphate. A beautiful and aesthetic, good-sized cabinet specimen from Cavnic and accompanied with the previous owner’s card label.
