Eirikite, Leifite, Rhodochrosite

Item number: 22969

The main feature of this specimen is the large spray of white, acicular eirikite-leifite crystals in a matrix entirely composed of sharp, 3mm or so rhombs of rhodocrosite plus some natrolite and polylithionite crystals. These kind of sprays of eirikite-leifite seem to always contain both minerals which phase in and out of each other.
