2" Kammererite Crystals on Matrix - Kop Krom Mine, Turkey
This is a gorgeous cluster of magenta colored kammererite crystals on a rock matrix, collected from the Kop Krom Mine in Turkey. The matrix is almost entirely encrusted a druze of kammererite crystals, with larger crystals scattered throughout the specimen.
Kammererite is a lustrous mineral that is typically rose-red to magenta in color. The chemical composition of this mineral is Mg5Al(AlSi3O10)(OH)8. It was named in 1841 by Nils Gustaf Nordenskiöld in honor of August Alexander Kämmerer.
