Exceptional combination from Kosovo. This awesome specimen is built up of a base of arsenopyrite and sphalerite which are also perfectly crystallised at one side, having lustrous crystals up to 1cm. The main part of this example is coated in orange to beige appearing rhodochrosite with some pinkish accents. Finishing of this beauty are definitely the well formed and lustrous quartz crystals that stick out all over the specimen. The specimen is from an old Bavarian collection and was acquired in 1982.
