Rhodochrosite With Quartz

ID: CC2820

The feature of this specimen from the famous Sweet Home Mine is the sharply developed rhombic Rhodochrosite crystals beautifully aggregated on the apex of the specimen. The Rhodochrosite crystals are translucent to near gemmy strawberry pink. The crystals have grown on colourless to white needle crystals of Quartz, together with complex sphenoidal intergrown crystals of Chalcopyrite, and rounded crystals of black Sphalerite. All these minerals have formed on a matrix of bright metallic crystalline Pyrite. A fine, well formed specimen of Rhodochrosite from one of the most desirable locations for the species.
