Kozulite, Rhodonite
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 5.5 x 5.3 cm
Woods Mine (Wood's Rhodonite Mine), Tamworth, Darling Co., New South Wales, Australia
A very impressive specimen of the rare Na-Mn Silicate Kozulite. Normally, any crystals are in the mm size range, but these Kozulite crystals are up to 7mm. Most are as cleavage faces or embedded crystal portions. And it is not just one crystal - they are in two rich veins that that completely span the specimen. A small amount of pink Rhodonite contrasts nicely. Ex. Charlie Key.
