Description

Highly lustrous, razor sharp terminated and really gemmy Rhodochrosite crystals attractively set on Manganite matrix. The color of Rhodochrosite is the most intense and most appreciated red you can imagine - absolutely best for the locality. The Manganite is well crystalized and developed sharp, sparkling crystals - the contrast with Rhodochrosite is very eye-catching. Really hard to find a specimen in this quality and dimension, which even shows such an attrctive contrast.
