Rhodochrosite With Calcite on Sphalerite

A pleasing contrasting specimen of lustrous pink inter grown curved crystals of Rhodochrosite, from the Trepca orebody complex, Kosovo. Pearly lustered Rhodochrosite crystals are agreeably contrasted with inter grown lustrous grey Calcite crystals, included by fine hair-like crystals of metallic grey 'Boulangerite'. Black drusy crystals of Sphalerite are in association, with silvery micro-crystals of Arsenopyrite, and minor Pyrite. A fine Rhodochrosite with a polymetallic assemblage of minerals.
