A fine and well sized, classic old-timer from this old, closed, classic Greek locality. The piece hosts, pinkish, rhombic crystals of rhodochrosite that are covered with a thin film of translucent, drusy quartz. The sulphidic matrix hosts both pyrite and sphalerite that add contrast. There is a large main rhomb that measures 4.5cm across!
