Rhodochrosite with Fluorite, Pyrite, Sphalerite from Wutong Mine
Dimension: 8.8cm x 5.4cm x 3cm
Locality: Wutong Mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co., Wuzhou Prefecture, Guangxi Province, China
Unusually large Rhodochrosite crystal with a very vivid watermelon pink to red color. It is rhombohedral, flattened and has very well marked parallel polycrystalline growths. A good sample for the museum. Attached to a group of minerals on the side, which contains green Fluorite, brassy-gold Pyrite and jet black Sphalerite, it is lustrous and gemmy, a fine specimen for connoisseur collectors! The contrast of the red against the dark Sphalerite makes it even better. The aesthetics, size and combinations are outstanding!
