THIS is the classic locale for kutnohorite in Germany: The iron ore mine of Buelten-Adenstedt yielded outstanding specimens of manganese and iron minerals as well as beautiful amethyst samples and more during the active mining period which ended in 1976 (Emilie shaft) - today all is landscaped an no finds are possible since decades. This sample is a classic with typical aggregates of salmon-coloured kutnohorite with some calcite mini crystals perched on top.
