Apatite, Rhodochrosite, Fluorite, Quartz
Wutong (Wudong) Mine, Liubao ("Babu"), Cangwu Co., Wuzhou Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
Miniature, 3.6 x 3.4 x 2.9 cm
A UNIQUE and showy combination specimen from recent finds at the Wudong Mine of China. A gemmy and lustrous, 8 mm, bi-colored, tan and colorless, apatite crystal sits front and center on cherry-red rhodochroite rhombs, purple fluorite cubes, quartz and a dusting of brass-yellow pyrite cubes. Certainly an unusual and rare specimen from this up and coming locality.
