Rhodonite, calcite, franklinite
« on: July 30, 2022, 09:04:08 PM »

I guess this would be rhodonite var. fowlerite, with some calcite (that small white patch lights up orange under UV), and - as evident by that small magnet stuck to the side - magnetite franklinite.

EDIT: originally I wrote that the black magnetic vein was magnetite, because I didn't know any better. It turns out that franklinite, more typically associated with fowlerite or rhodonite from New Jersey, is also magnetic.
