Title is exactly "Melilite-bearing rock "
Large (1 cm-2 cm) dark grey to translucent quartz crystals comprise the matrix of the rock. Melilite minerals propagate consistently paralell to one another throughout the rock.
The rock is largely comprised of a very fine grained light green matrix with large (1 x 3 cm) black equant galena crystals. It's pretty magnificent.
