RM1722   Manganocalcite with fluorite, galena and pyrite

Santa Eulalia, Aquiles Serdán, Chihuahua, Mexico

Very esthetic specimen formed by numerous aggregates of crystals of calcite manganoan, very bright, transparent to translucent, forming globular groups very well set on the matrix. They present a slightly pinkish tone due to the presence of Mn. Extremely fluorescent under LW-UV, with a spectacular pink to red color. They are accompanied by small octahedral cubic crystals of colorless and transparent fluorite. In a matrix of bright crystals of pyrite, sphalerite and galena. An exceptional piece.

Main crystal: 10 x 8 mm.

Col. J.M. Manchion (Barcelona) - No.420 (Kucera, 1988)
