One face of an opaque, light pink, massive manganoan calcite is completely covered with tiny quartz points, giving a sugary appearance. Peppered about atop the quartz are small but sharp and iridescent chalcopyrite crystals. The manganoan calcite matrix glows a dull red to orange-red under both longwave and shortwave UV light. No damage.
