SPHALERITE RHODOCHROSITE PYRITE QUARTZ SPECIMEN

ALL PHOTOS AND VIDEO WERE TAKEN IN NATURAL DAYLIGHT

MUCH MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THE PHOTOS REVEAL

ORIGIN : MADEM-LAKKOS MINE, CHALKIDIKI, MACEDONIA, GREECE

(MACEDONIA - THE LAND OF THE GREEK KING ALEXANDER THE GREAT)

A wonderful example of a highly sought after mixed specimen among local collectors consisting of shiny metallic black Sphalerite crystals and Rhodochrosite. The Rhodochrosite is covered by a quartz microcrystals film giving it a snow white color and there is also some shiny golden Pyrite scattered on the base.Colours contrast wonderfully. Although crystals are visible to the naked eye, specimen requires magnification on order to fully enjoy the crystal structures, see if you can spot the terminated micro Quartz crystals,  Specimen looks wonderful under magnification. The locality is hardly known to the mineral world and hardly any of this material from this locality is available on the market which makes it a rare specimen (google search). Specimen comes from the historically mined but now closed Madem-Lakkos deposit in Northern Greece. A Greek classic now found only in private collections. Will be a wonderful addition to any rock and mineral collection. This is the opportunity to add this old timer to your rock/mineral collection.
