Rhodochrosite on Quartz

ID: CC4612

Powder pink Rhodochrosite has formed on gemmy crystals of Quartz from the Broken Hill Mines. Australia. The Rhodochrosite is seen to have formed compartment-like ridges, mostly composed of inter grown botryodial habit. Also in association with the Rhodochrosite on the Quartz are inter grown rosettes of a grey-green Chlorite mineral.
