Large, museum sized red Rhodonite crystals in a matrix of crystallized Galena. This is an impressive large specimen composed of multiple large crystals bound together by Galena. Individual Rhodonite crystals reach 8cm long. The crystals grew inwards from each end of the specimen and the terminations all interlock towards the middle. I considered trying to trim this into a few pieces to expose the terminations more, but decided to leave it as is. It's an incredible piece worthy of a museum. I've never seen so many big crysals in one specimen before.

Large, museum sized Millerite specimen from the Agnew Mine, one of the largest nickel deposits in the world. This is an impressive large specimen composed of multiple hemispherical clusters of golden acicular Millerite crystals. The mound-like clusters reach over 6cm in diameter. The bright golden acicular crystals are reaadily seen on the smaller clusters and the the exposed sides of the larger clusters. It's an incredible piece worthy of a museum, in fact I understand most museums in Australia don't have an Agnew Millerite of this magnitude. This is an old specimen from a now closed mine.
