This specimen consists mostly of opaque but quite pink rhodochrosite, either in clusters of small crystals or massive. Accented with patches of sublustrous galena crystals and mostly massive, cleaved sphalerite. Additional interest -- and some sparkle -- is provided by a few parches of small, colorless quartz. Multiple display angles not needing a stand are possible. No damage. Put some pink in your mineral cabinet!
