Description

A fantastic rhodo from this famous locality in Peru. Usually crystals are smaller, usually crystals are less red - but this specimen is not common at all. The large freestanding main crystal (22 mm tall) shows incredible color, excellent clarity and quality like I only saw it from N´chwaning so far. The contarst to black manganese matrix and the aesthetic assemble are fantastic, the specimen is absolutely exceptional for Peru!
