Lustrous crystals of Bustamite with Calcite and Galena from the classic Broken Hill ore-body in New South Wales, Australia.  The Bustamite, a calcium manganese inosilicate, forms typically rounded crystals measuring to 3.7 cm tall, by 2.2 cm wide and 1.5 cm deep. The colour is a mid to light reddish-cherry pink and the mainly translucent crystals do exhibit some gemminess. The Bustamite is intergrown with tinted yellow Calcite and silvery metallic Galena. A fine specimen of nicely crystallised Bustamite from the Broken Hill mining district, one of its most iconic minerals.
