A black and gold mixed sulfides matrix is covered with a white and opaque, sugar quartz crust. Partially covering the quartz crust is a blanket of small and opaque but beautifully pink rhodochrosite blades. A little more sparkly quartz and a few micro sulfides sit among the rhodochrosite. Small but pink from Colorado! Displays nicely, and free of damage.
