A superb manganoan calcite on a matrix of quartz coated galena from Dal’negorsk, Primorskiy Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia! The large manganoan calcite crystals have formed in an aesthetic arrangement upon the matrix. They have a nice pink coloration, which contrasts nicely with the off-white quartz and metallic sheen of the galena.
