Unusual and very attractive specimen of Kutnohorite. Usually, Kutnohorite is found in radial growths that for all the world resembles broccoli - attractive from both the sides and the top. Here we have complete balls of Kutnohorite with the surfaces smoother than normal, and a nice rich pink in color that also out of the ordinary. The largest of the crystals is about 1.5 cm across. Quite exceptional for the species.
