Description

Spectacular specimen composed of a multitude of pink-red translucent and gemmy, in some extent, rhombohedral Rhodochrosites on matrix associated with Quartz crystals from the famous Sweet Home mine Colorado USA! Trully impressive in size and crystal concentration considering the locality and the difficulty to extract these specimens, with dozens of crystals spread aesthetically across the matrix! Two or three contacts which are hardly visible from the main view! Excellent and rare specimen! Hard to show in pictures, much better in person.
