725-2HMRhodonite, Galena, Bustamite

Multiple photos available
Broken Hill South Mine, Broken Hill, Broken Hill district, Yancowinna Co., New South Wales, Australia

A quite lovely specimen of Rhodonite and Bustamite with Galena from Broken Hill. Most of the Rhodonite crystals are fully intact with a beautiful, ruby red colour. The largest crystal is about 2cm.

The label describes 'Rhodonite, Bustamite and Galena from Broken Hill Australia'.

I assume the orange-ish material is Bustamite but I have no chemical analysis of it so I am just going by the label.

Whole specimen is about 10+ cm long.
