Light pink colored Rhodochrosite crystals cover much of the surface of this specimen. The Rhodochrosite crystals are very small, ranging from microscopic to up to 1 mm. Upon close examination, the crystals can be seen to be transparent. The crystals have a high, glassy luster which gives the specimen a very sparkly appearance. For the most part, the Rhodochrosite crystals have grown directly on Manganite crystals. However, in one area, small, spherical aggregates of colorless Quartz have grown on the Manganite crystals. The Rhodochrosite crystals have grown on and partially covered these Quartz crystals. The Manganite crystals are well formed with a platy habit and have a high, submetallic luster.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
