Description

This massive rhodonite is an unusually large size, especially for a specimen of this fine color and aesthetic and sculptural qualities.

A first-rate display piece with rich pink coloring and crystallization all around on 5 sides, showing multiple lustrous straight edges and partial terminations amongst the bulk of the massive rhodonite.

The matrix is a thin layer of semi-metallic graphite, with some very small occurrences of pyrite.

Note the thin crevice in the 2nd and 5th photos -- this small section has a slight wobble indicating it isn't completely attached, however it has not broken or needed repair, so with care it will remain intact.

This impressively large 'chunk' of rhodonite.

Ex. Collection of Leo Jahaan

Seller's terms and conditions

Please read the dimensions of the specimen, as the size of minerals in photos can be misleading.

To see the details shown in close-up macro photos, you may require a high quality magnifying glass or jeweler's loupe.

Care has been taken to accurately display the colors of the specimen. However, please be aware that computer monitors and phone screens each display colors slightly differently. Differences in light brightness and light source can also drastically alter the appearance of mineral colors. Therefore please be aware that while these photos are accurate and colors have not been enhanced, what you see on your screen may vary slightly from what you see in your hand, and may require specific lighting conditions (usually brighter is better).

Information regarding the specimen's found locality and mineral identification is believed to be correct, however due to the complexities of ID'ing minerals and tracking source locations in rare cases this data may be imprecise.

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to send a message.
