Description

This is really a exceptional specimen - most rhodochrosite from the region are only very light pink; not so here: the specimen shows the most intense pink you can imagine from Cavnic, the saturation is crazy good for the locality. And it is even well formed with a large hemisphere in the center and it shows contrast with an exposed group of sharp, lustrous quartz crystals at the top. A marvellous specimen! Undamaged, only backside was on the rock.
