Description

Rhodochrosite with Fluorite and Quartz from well know locality Wutong Mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co., Wuzhou, Guangxi, China.

A beautiful specimen of light pink rhodochrosite crystals between are cubic crystals of purplish, glassy and luster fluorite.

An interesting fact is that most fluorite crystals are overgrown with perfectly pure quartz crystals.

The Wutong Mine is famous for the finest rhodochrosites ever found.

There is one damage in the central part (missing crystal), but despite this, the specimen does not lose its charm.

Nice cabinet specimen
