This is a beautiful specimen, from recent finds at the Wudong Mine of China. It features several minerals: apatite, sitting in the middle sits front and center on cherry-red rhodochroite rhombs. The purple cubes are fluorite crystals, and of course, brass-yellow cubes are pyrite. Everything is surrounded by beautiful quartz crystals coming in from all over the place. It’s extremely rare that such a gorgeous rock is found, a true geological gem.
Andrei's background is in geophysics, and he's been fascinated by it ever since he was a child. Feeling that there is a gap between scientists and the general audience, he started ZME Science -- and the results are what you see today.
