Wow, here's a cool and unusual piece! Large scalenohedronal calcite crystals have been psuedomorphed (and epimorphed) by lustrous pink rhodochrosite, in turn sprinkled with a dusting of pyrite. A very aesthetic and unusual specimen from the classic Kalahari Manganese Fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa. Did I mention this piece was BIG? At almost 23 cm across, this is a visually-impressive specimen that would enhance most any mineral cabinet. Ex - Uli Bahmann Collection
