Nagyagite With Rhodochrosite
Nagyag, Hunedoara County, Romania (TYPE LOCALITY)
Small Cabinet, 9.3 x 6.7 x 2.7 cm
A very rich specimen of nagyagite from its type locality in the early 1800s, hosted on rhodochrosite and quartz. This is a classic association, but unusual in such visually attractive specimens overall. Although there is some damage to the surface, many of the nagyagite crystals, to 5-6mm, are protected in a little crevasse here and show nicely contrasted to the pink rhodo and the white quartz. This is an important locality specimen, nice to look at, and for the price I think a good bargain to own one of these in any appreciable sized specimen.
