The famous Trepca Mining District, a world-class locality for numerous sulfide and gangue minerals, has recently started producing fine specimens again. This showy specimen features unusual cone-like pink rhodochrosite crystals over which baby-pink manganocalcite crystals have grown. A classic association for Trepca! Mark Cross photo.
