ID: CC2273

A pleasing specimen of Rhodochrosite on Quartz from the Baia Sprie mining area in Romania. The area was once called Felsöbánya (Upper Mine) when it was part of Hungary in the 15th century. The specimen displays a pretty powder pink druse of intergrown platy Rhodochrosite crystals that have preferentially coated one side of the Quartz crystals. The multitude of crystal faces twinkle in any viewed direction. The interlocked prismatic Quartz crystals measure to 3.5cm tall, translucent white with an excellent lustre. A fine specimen from this old European mining area.
