DescriptionRhodochrosite and Calcite
Trepca Stan Terg Mine (Stari Trg Mine; Trepca Mine; Stan Trg Mine)
Trepca complex, Trepca valley, Kosovska Mitrovica
District of Kosovska Mitrovica
This piece is both awe inspiring and extremely heavy. The massive mineral association is from a most unusual locality - Kosovo. It exhibits a spectacular contrast of gray and white Calcite against soft pink Rhodochrosite. The majority of the pink material has been coated with a granular, graphite drusy. This large and unique specimen is both collectible and highly decorative. Overall, it is a lovely association on a massive place which affords a huge visible impact. This type of specimen is likely to appear fresh to market as much material has not been coming out of the worn-torn country until recently. This striking plate is in good condition and may just be the perfect "oddity" to round out any display case.
